A long trip awaits Lydbrook Band this coming Saturday when they visit the East Suffolk town of Aldeburgh to take part in the High Tide Festival.

The band has been invited by the Concordia Foundation to celebrate the work of World War I poet Isaac Rosenberg, and will perform alongside the Apollo 5 Vocal Ensemble and award-winning klezmer musicians.

Silver Rose

Conducted by Ian Holmes, Lydbrook will perform 'Silver Rose' written by composer Liz Lane (above) for brass band and narrator. The poems will be spoken by the acclaimed actor Henry Goodman.

Liz is the band's composer in residence and the music was first performed at the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery on Armistice Sunday last year. The work was commissioned by Bristol 2014 with funds from Arts Council England.

Concordia Foundation

The event is presented by the Concordia Foundation which was founded by international singer and broadcaster Gillian Humphreys OBE.

Lydbrook will perform the second half of the programme following the 'Ballad of Whitechapel' narrated by Jill, Lady Freud, which celebrates the extraordinary work and life-enhancing legacy of Isaac Rosenberg.

I'm delighted to be working with Lydbrook again in my new role as composer-in-residence, and with the Concordia Foundation artistsLiz Lane

Delighted

Liz Lane told 4BR: "I'm delighted to be working with Lydbrook again in my new role as composer-in-residence, and with the Concordia Foundation artists.

I'm looking forward to the second performance of 'Silver Rose' at Aldeburgh Jubilee Hall, home of the first Aldeburgh Festival, which will also be attended by three members of Isaac Rosenberg's family."
