WORLD MUSIC CONTEST 2022
July 7 – 31, 2022

The World Music Contest (WMC) is above all a celebration of music. In the seventy years of the festival’s existence, WMC has proven that it is a relevant – perhaps the most significant – player in the world of wind music, attracting more than 20,000 musicians and some 350,000 visitors to the city of Kerkrade every four years.

In essence, WMC is a wind music festival based on contests for wind and fanfare bands, percussion ensembles, brass bands, marching and show bands, and conductors. Winners at Kerkrade can officially call themselves the world champions for the four years until the next contest. During the four week festival, WMC’s program will feature high quality orchestras and artists from the world at various locations in the city and region, showcasing a cross section of what wind music has to offer.

The festival, which has been held every four years in Kerkrade (Netherlands) since 1951, is a meeting place where musicians and visitors from different backgrounds can come into contact and where cultures unite in order to make music. WMC offers a platform for contests on a global level – but most of all, it looks to connect people. It establishes valuable crossovers in wind music and encourages unique musical experiences.

WMC welcomes a wide variety of wind groups from wind ensembles and concert bands to brass bands to marching groups. WMC will start taking registrations April 1, 2021.

WASBE CONFERENCE PRAGUE 2022
JULY 19 - 23, 2022 


The WASBE Conference 2022 will take place on the Slavonic Island and in its Žofín Palace, a very special venue in the heart of Prague, situated next to the National Theatre on the Vltava River. The whole palace will be exclusively dedicated to the WASBE event, and the surrounding garden, the whole island and other venues in the historical centre of Prague will host the open-air concerts and fringe programme. The neo-Renaissance Žofín Palace is one of the most important cultural and social centres in Prague. Concerts, conferences, and balls are held here. The Great Hall of the Žofín Palace regularly hosts the most important personalities from the economic, political, and cultural life of the Czech Republic and from abroad. In November, 1882 Bedřich Smetana’s cycle of symphonic poems, My Homeland (Má Vlast), was performed here for the first time. For more details on the WASBE 2022 Conference, please visit their website at wasbe2022.com.

World Projects is proud to be a PREFERRED TRAVEL PROVIDER of the WMC and WASBE and is happy to assist in arranging Performance Tours surrounding the event.

12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS


At the beginning of ths month, we kicked off our "12 Days of Christmas" series celebrating our wonderful composers and showcasing their incredible music! As a special additional gift for the holidays, if you purchase a piece from any of the participating composers through our website, you will receive a "20 min Zoom session" to discuss their compositional and educational process directly related to your purchase.

We also had an amazing first "Composers on Zoom" session with Brett Abigaña last week where he spoke about his music, compositional style, and answered your questions! Yesterday, our special guest was Dr. Alec Schumacker. He presented three compositional philosophical principles and how to incorporate each one in your classroom. 

Join us on Thursday, January 7, 2021 for the next installment. Our special guest will be Brad Hart and he will be sharing how to activate your student composer beyond the homework assignment.
