The Lost Chord Society: The Lake Wobegon® Brass Band's Fund for New Music
The Lake Wobegon® Brass Band's Lost Chord Society is an ongoing search for the "Lost Chord" as described in Adelaide Anne Procter's poem and set by Sir Arthur Sullivan. The Society's goal is to commission new works for brass band by outstanding composers from around the world. The first commission is a work by famed British composer, Philip Wilby, to recognize the founding of the band in 1992. This work will be premiered on March 3 - 5, 2017. Future works for brass band, organ and choir are now being planned.
