Fragile Oasis has been picked for the Senior Cup brass band competition, part of the Spring Festival held in at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool, England, on Saturday May 13.
Originally commissioned by the Leyland Band and Michael Bach (partly funded by The John Golland Trust), this is the first time it has been used as a set test piece having previously been used as an own choice selection in brass band contests on three different continents.
Further information can be found from the British Bandsman website.
A soundcloud clip of the premiere performance by Leyland Band and Michael Bach, at the European Brass Band Championships 2013, held in Oslo, can be heard below.
