JLGB musicians play the palace
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”.
