Video Featurette: The Diamond Baton

In 2020, Roger Cichy wrote The Diamond Baton in recognition of Dan Diamond’s 50 years of service to The Concord Band. While the band has not yet had a chance to premiere the piece as a full ensemble due to the pandemic, Roger recorded most of the players individually and combined all the audio recordings. Ken Troup provided videos of players who recorded their parts at 51 Walden and Jean Patterson overlaid these videos with the audio track. The opening video clip features Dan Diamond playing a percussion solo at a previous concert. The video of our virtual creation of The Diamond Baton is now available on the Concord Band's You Tube Channel. The Concord Band has been thrilled to be involved in such an interesting virtual project.
