A number of new projects are already being discussed.

Increase Profile

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.”
