As the Final of this year’s Eurovision Young Musicians is about to take place in Edinburgh, some positive news has come from Belgium. Telepro, a Belgian publication has stated that RTBF wishes to focus it’s efforts on both the biennial Contest, as well as Eurovision Choir Of The Year – another biennial Contest from the European Broadcasting Union.
Eurovision Young Musicians saw a resurgence this year in Edinburgh, with a near-record participation of 18 countries. Belgium returned after a 12 year absence.
This year, Belgium was represented by Alexandra Cooreman, who played the Violin. Sadly, she failed to make it past the Semi Final stage.
Jon Ola Sand has discussed the importance of these smaller Eurovision Contests with Ewan Spence from ESC Insight, ahead of this year’s Eurovision Young Musicians. You can listen to the interview HERE.
