The finale concert of the 4th WBAS Youth Band Festival showcases band students ranging from primary schools to tertiary institutions. Hand picked via auditions prior to the Festival, these outstanding young talents experienced a week of music making in a dynamic and exciting setting where they are mentored by musicians of the Windstars Ensemble and led by conductors Quek Boon Hui, Alvin Seville and Bjørn Sagstad from Norway.

Also guest appearing in the concert will be the Windstars Ensemble, a collective of Singapore's finest musicians that is known to have garnered rapturous applause for its lyricism and beauty on the symphonic stage, as well as gritty, pumping pop rhythms since its inception in 2012.

Programme includes classic works such as Armenian Dances II, Egil Hovland’s Fanfare and Choral, Toshio Mashima’s La Danse du Phénix and new works such as Ride by Samuel Hazo, The knight of the sky, The Cave You Fear by Michael Markowski and familiar favourite Highlight from Les Miserables and the latest work from the New Sound in Brass series.
