The Lydbrook Band will perform a new fanfare entitled, 'Diamond Jubilee' from the pen of Liz Lane for the arrival of the Yellow Baton at the Royal Forest Jubilee event this weekend.
Liz told 4BR: "Diamond Fanfare is written for a special occasion, and 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."
