A 1992 New Years Day Extravaganza

The Lord Mayor of Westminster's New Year's Day Spectacular 1992

Lyn Dell Garrison

Unforgettable experience

My memory is from January 1, 1992, the day I performed at the RAH. But let me back up and give you all the details. In the early 1990's, I played clarinet in a community band from Camden, South Carolina, USA. In mid 1991, I recall the excitement we all felt when our conductor, Patrick Wylie announced that our band had been selected as the first American  community band to participate in the Lord Mayor of Westminister's New Year's Day Spectacular in The Royal Albert Hall, London, England. WOW. just WOW. A once in a lifetime experience for me and for us all. Happy 150 RAH
