The annual poppy appeal concert organised by the Royal British Legion takes place on Sunday 5th November this year, 3pm at the City Hall in Salisbury.
This year, the concert is being recorded live for broadcast on Remembrance Sunday by Wiltshire Radio so, please come along and bring your voices to be a part of this unique event.
Featured artists this year are the world famous Opera Babes and West of England Champion Band 2017 – Woodfalls Band.
Salisbury has a vibrant fan-base for all things opera and the brass band fraternity is equally strong locally but there has never been any form of “crossover”, until NOW! This fusion of “Babes and Brass” will be a ground-breaking collaboration of two of its finest exponents – both at the top of the tree in their respective genres! The band will accompany the Operas Babes with some especially commissioned arrangements. So, raise the curtain, bring up the lights, this is one not to miss!
Programme to include:-
“The Cats duet” (Duetto buffo di due gatti) by G. Rossini; “Flower Duet” by L. Delibes; “Ode to Joy” (An Die Freude) by Beethoven and “The Drinking Song” (Brindisi) from La Traviata by Verdi. The Woodfalls Band will thrill you with its unique music and the Service of Remembrance will provide an opportunity for remembrance to include Last Post and Reveille and the show will end with a flag waving opportunity in Land of Hope and Glory.
All proceeds will go the RBL “Poppy Appeal”
