The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS - BY LIANNE KOLIRIN

JLGB MU­SI­CIANS per­formed for Prince Charles at Buck­ing­ham Palace on Tues­day as part of a youth awards cer­e­mony.

The JLGB Red­bridge Band was recog­nised for its in­volve­ment in civic and com­mu­nity events.

In par­tic­u­lar, it re­flected the work it does around re­mem­brance and vet­er­ans.

Based at King Solomon High School in Red­bridge, the band has of­fered mu­si­cal in­struc­tion and per­form­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for gen­er­a­tions of mem­bers.

Snare drum­mer Lewis Shine said: “I never could have dreamed I would play at such a pres­ti­gious venue when I started play­ing the drum for fun seven years ago.”

JLGB chief ex­ec­u­tive Neil Martin, who is also the band’s mu­si­cal di­rec­tor, said mem­bers “were hon­oured as proud Bri­tish Jews to per­form in the Throne Room at Buck­ing­ham Palace in the pres­ence of the Prince of Wales to cel­e­brate the amaz­ing achieve­ments of young peo­ple and adult vol­un­teers”.
