A Concert to Celebrate and Remember the Centenary of the Armistice
Alford’s two biggest musical organisations are joining forces to present a spectacular Remembrance Concert to mark the centenary of the First World War Armistice.
Alford Silver Band and the Elizabethan Singers will come together on Saturday 10th November in St Wilfrid’s Church, Alford to present Alford Remembers, a very special concert designed both to celebrate the centenary of the Armistice as well as remembering those who gave their lives. The performance will start at 7.30 pm.
Both organisations enjoy a wide following and have teamed up before to present a highly successful joint concert in June 2017.
“We received many compliments following that concert,” commented the Elizabethan Singer’s director of music, Andrew Willoughby. “Many people suggested that we should repeat the venture. This special centenary of the Armistice provides us with the ideal opportunity.”
Both the band and the singers will each perform their individual programmes before coming together for a grand finale that will feature an original medley of popular songs from both world wars that has been specially arranged by the band’s musical director, Josh Wilkinson.
