'Klankstad (transl. Musical Town) Kerkrade' is named after Kerkrade, a town and municipality in the southeastern Netherlands (Limburg). Internationally Kerkrade is known as the town, where every fourth year (last was in 2005) the quadra-annual event, promoted as the World Music Contest, is held. During three weeks amateur, as well as professional, military bands and similar orchestras from many countries meet to compete in their category and division. My hometown Heerlen is only eight kilometers away from Kerkrade.
