Event details

For over two decades, University of Salford student composers have had the unique opportunity to have their compositions and arrangements played and often published through this prestigious competition. As a result of this event, the Kirklees Publishers have a section of their catalogue known as the ‘Salford Collection’. A number of previous prize winners have gone on to compose significantly for the brass repertoire. This is an exceptional opportunity to listen to this year’s high standard of competition entries. Among the adjudicators will be Kirklees Managing Director, Graham Horsfield. This year we will also feature a guest band from Norway to play a brand new section for composers that have written brass ensemble music.
