The Somme100 – Commemorative Concert

The Somme100 – Commemorative Concert

This year is the 100th year since World War One’s, Battle of the Somme.

In conjunction with the Battle of the Somme Centenary Tour and as part of The Somme100 Film Project Queen’s Park High School are collaborating with Chester Philharmonic Orchestra on a performance to commemorate the historic event. The concert will feature music by Laura Rossi and a film commissioned by the Imperial War Museum, to which the Orchestra will be providing the soundtrack. This will be one of the first 100 performances of the film and score in the country.

Following on from this, Queen’s Park High School students will perform a number of pieces including reprises of some of the songs performed with the Orchestra in their sensational musical, Les Miserables. The concert will conclude with a few WW1 songs for everyone.

There will be two performances on Saturday 9 July; Matinee at 2.00pm and Evening Performance at 7.30pm in the Main Hall at Queen’s Park High School.

As we anticipate this to be a sell-out, please book early to avoid disappointment.
