On 11th June 2016, Lydbrook Band will host The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration Concert at the Forest Theatre Coleford featuring music through the decades of the Queen’s reign. Amongst the programme will be Liz Lane‘s Diamond Fanfare, commissioned for the Royal Forest Jubilee Proms in the Park with conductor Ian Holmes and performed as part of the Brass The Baton relay race, a 2012 cultural Olympiad project for brass bands.
Hidden within the festive music are two separate versions of part of the National Anthem. Rhythmic drive and momentum is sustained by the percussion throughout whilst celebratory motifs are passed around the brass section, racing to a sparkling flourish at the finish.
