The final set of performances of ‘The World Rejoicing’ will take place at Grieg Hall, Bergen, Norway, on Friday 10 February 2023. The work was commissioned as the set test piece for their national competitions by five European countries in 2019, but because of the pandemic all the national premieres were postponed for over two years. The world premiere eventually took place in the Netherlands in October 2021, followed by those in Switzerland, UK, and Belgium.

The Norwegian premiere promise to be an exciting event as the ten bands competing for their national trophy are amongst some of the finest in Europe.
