Remembrance Concert 2018


12th November, 2018


Creating new experiences and mixing up concerts is something that Boarshurst Silver Band have been doing for a few years now, this years Remembrance concert was no different. We wanted to give a concert that allowed people to fully understand the 1st world war and hear from real diary entries and letters from the men that fought in The Great War. This year was made even more special as it marked the centenary of the signing of the Armistice between allied forces and Germany.

The concert was given a movie night feel with a projection of images and video clips from the great war. Along with this Paul Wooding added another dimension to this years concert.

Paul’s narration included a diary entry, reference to the Pots and Pans and Edwin Firth, the Fodens Motor Works cornet player and composer who was killed in the First World War.

Great narration from Paul Wooding, visual effects from Boarshursts tech gurus along with some great pieces and audience participation allowed for a great remembrance concert that we are sure people will remember.
