WW1 Remembrance Concert Nov 2014, 2nd November

Go back

A most moving & poignant concert to show our respect for all those who were involved in the outbreak of World War 1. We were joined by Chepstow School Ensemble, who performed two beautiful hymn arrangements, and the Beachley Barracks Fijiian Military Singers, who just sang from the heart and left everyone feeling uplifted. The Last Post was played by a Beachley Bugler, which was a spine tingling moment to round off a concert of such beautiful music. We certainly will remember them...
