Closer Musical Relationship
Principal cornet Roger Webster confirmed that the Yorkshire band is planning to forge a closer musical relationship with Nigel over the next few years, and follows from their acclaimed premiere of his composition `Further Adventures of the Same’ at the 2016 RNCM Festival of Brass. A number of new projects are already being discussed.
Nigel said: “From a young age, I became aware of the Grimethorpe Band through the new composition work that they performed under the baton of Elgar Howarth. I am proud to continue my relationship with them and will seek to help the Band increase its profile outside of the brass band world and encourage a new generation of composers and audiences to subscribe to this extraordinary group of musicians. I am also clearly looking forward to writing for the Band.”
