Mareika Gray Appointed As New NABBC Chairperson

At the recent AGM for the National Association of Brass Band Conductors (NABBC) Mareika Gray was appointed as the new chairperson of the organisation. NABBC secretary James Holt told A4B: “I have known Mareika for some time and she has done so much within the banding movement she was an obvious choice to approach about the position, we were delighted when she accepted the invitation to attend the AGM to stand as Chair. I know all at the association would like to place on record their thanks and well wishes for outgoing chair Andrew White who has served the association admirably during his tenure."

Hailing from Papua New Guinea and growing up in Australia, Mareika played the violin for 10 years, changing to brass at the age of 18. She has played with Brisbane Excelsior, Sola Brass Band in Norway, and with The Ransome Band. She has conducted in Australia and Norway, and Eccles became her first appointment in Britain in February 2010.
