Jubilee Overture was commissioned for the fiftieth anniversary of the British-based GUS Brass Band and first performed by them at the band's Golden Jubilee Concert in 1983. It was transcribed for wind band in 1984. The work opens with a two-part fanfare - a brass flourish followed by a reflective chorale for the winds. This builds to a climax as the flourish returns. A lively allegro follows, with many changes of meter and a robust tune from the horns and saxophones. Eventually a cantabile tune emerges from the middle of the band, which everyone then plays before the allegro returns. A brief repeat of the opening fanfare precedes a presto coda.
