Fresh from the Royal British Legion’s Voyage of Remembrance, where they accompanied the 300 D-Day veterans on the MV Boudicca across the English Channel this summer, the Central Band are delighted to be returning to St John’s, Upper Norwood, for an evening of celebratory music and cheer!
Led by their inimitable Music Director and three time BAFTA winner Captain David Cole OBE, this Last Night of the Proms concert promises the usual greatest hits including Rule Britannia, Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory, as well as music from the Academy-Award-winning motion picture Chicago, the enduring songs of composer Cole Porter, and celebrated works by Shostakovich, Marvin Hamlisch and John Philip Sousa.
Known for their energetic performances and high standards of musicianship, this inspiring band of players welcome families and people of all ages to their concerts! Admission is FREE with a retiring collection for St John’s ongoing renovation work. We look forward to seeing you there!
