Calling all young composers!
If you’re under 19 on 1st September 2016 and enjoy composing brass band music, then The Nock Deighton Challenge for young composers is for you.
… and the good news is that the final entry date for this year’s competition has been extended to 1st June – so there is still time to enter.
The Nock Deighton Challenge is part of Ironbridge Gorge Brass Band Festival – a fantastic free festival featuring 20 brass bands which is taking place on The Green at the award winning Ironbridge Gorge Museum on 9th and 10th July.
Ideally your composition will be between two and a half and four minutes long and if you win, you’ll receive a cash prize of £150 and get to keep The Eric Peagam Memorial Trophy. There are cash prizes for second and third place, too.
