Liz Lane

Liz LaneLiz first worked with New Harmonie in 2003 when they commissioned her, with funding from South-East Arts Council, to write Why Cats Sit on Doorsteps in the Sun, a 25 minute work for wind dectet, piano and dancers, performed at The Capitol Theatre, Horsham. This went on to receive a number of performances by other ensembles, including Chinook Winds in Seattle.

Since 2010, Liz has regularly written arrangements especially for New Harmonie's live music for children with special needs, and particularly their visits to dementia and palliative care patients, creating bespoke excerpts ranging from famous melodies old and new, nursery rhymes, action songs, dances, marches, classics and popular tunes.

Liz is a regularly commissioned composer whose music has been widely performed including BBC Radio 3 and BBC 1. She increasingly works in the field of brass bands and community projects, often facilitating unusual and large-scale ventures.
