Edward Gregson is to be the featured composer at the forthcoming NABBA contest to be held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on Saturday 12 April. His music has been chosen for each section of the national contest, with the championship section (where the finest brass bands in North America will be performing) setting his new Symphony in two movements as the test piece.

Edward Gregson will be attending the festival where he will be presented with the President’s Award for his outstanding contribution to the brass band repertoire.
