    Brighouse and Rastrick Band are holding two open rehearsals on Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th September at 7:45pm ahead of the British Open Championships in Birmingham. You can hear the band in their final preparations at the Central Methodist Church, Brighouse. The set piece for this year is a new commission from popular composer Edward Gregson, ‘Rococo Variations’.

    Gregson’s piece is both individual in style and ecclectic as each of the six variations pays tribute to a different composer whose contribution to the brass band repertoire during the second half of the twentieth century has been of great significance.

    The band remains unchanged in personnel from their previous contest outing in June at the English National contest and are hoping to build upon the credible 3rd place they achieved in an extremely competitive field.
