USA News - Diana Herak and the BBC to premiere new Pete Meechan piece Sunday, December 4th Diana Herak and the Brass Band of Columbus will be premiering a new baritone solo entitled "Alu" written by Pete Meechan. The piece was comissioned by her husband Patrick for their 10th anniversary and the premiere will take place at the the same church they were married at, Ascencion Lutheran Church in Columbus, Ohio. Patrick recalled, "I remember when Diana first heard some of Pete's music at the Royal Northern College of Music Brass Festival, she instantly became a fan of Pete's." When contacted about the premiere, Pete said, "It was a pleasure to write this solo for Diana, and my only regret is that I'm not able to make it over to the States for the premiere. However, I know both Pat and Diana from their time in the UK, and know that it will be a special performance." Pete is also planning to publish "Alu" with a new publishing company he will be launching at the begining of next year.
