The winner of COPA KAPELLA 2018: Copchase Brass XXL
Second edition of the wind-music competition
The second edition of the COPA KAPELLA competition for wind-instrument bands was held in conjunction with the ‘Woodstock of Wind Music’ at Musikmesse 2018. The grande finale was held on the Saturday of the fair.
How it worked:
• Each group entering may not exceed twenty musicians.
• At least three of the musicians must play a wind instrument.
• All musical genres are welcome.
Bands that meet these basic requirements and want to enter the competition should submit a representative video showing them in action. The type of music played – own compositions, cover versions or interpretations – is unimportant. However, the entry is limited to a single video, which can be uploaded to firstname.lastname@example.org via any file-transfer service, e.g., WeTransfer, Dropbox, Vimeo.
All videos received were viewed and, after the deadline, an expert jury chose the twelve best, most creative or most amusing videos, which will be put onto the Woodstock of Wind Music website to be voted on by fans. The five most popular bands played to an audience of experts and renowned jurors in the finale in the Festival Arena at Musikmesse 2018.
