Friends of the Band - Concert March

Composed by Ron Glynn


This lively new Concert March, “Friends of the Band”, was written in recognition of those friends and supporters of all Brass Bands whose help financially and in all other ways, are invaluable in the successful running of the organisations. There is a slight hint of the song, “Dear Old Pals, Jolly Old Pals” in the first section which again embeds the feelings all players and conductors have towards our band’s supporters. The work was originally composed for the Hook Norton Brass Band, when the composer’s wife gave so much of her time encouraging supporters to become friends. This is a great addition to all bands’ libraries and a way to pay tribute and thanks.
