Mandy Leung selected for NYBBGB composition final

Welsh composer Mandy Leung has been shortlisted for the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain's compostiion prize. Her entry and those of the other other five finalists will entries go forward to the judges panel (Robert Childs, Sarah Ioannides and Dorothy Gates.)

The overall winner of the competition will receive a £1,000 prize, together with an offer from Prima Vista Musikk to publish their work, and will also have their piece performed by the NYBBGB Youth Band under the baton of Sarah Ionnades at their Summer concert. The runner up in the competition will receive £250 and, if it is suitable, will have their piece performed by the Children’s Band in the Summer. Of the response to the competition in general, NYBBGB CEO Mark Bromley said “We received more entries than I dared imagine and from a globally diverse range of young composers. The final six Bob has chosen are all really high quality, so to narrow it down to two is going to be a hard choice for the judges. I’m certain the NYBBGB will maintain a relationship with each of these young composers as they develop their careers.”
