“The choice of music never fails to excite. We are so lucky in E&B to have been able to call on such combined talent.” Pat Strack, Elstree & Borehamwood Town Mayor
Nearly 30 years after its first performance, the BBC Elstree Concert Band will perform in the iconic Speech Room at Harrow school for a special St Luke’s proms celebration.
Directed by Andrew Morley, the band will play a range of pieces, focussing on contemporary, film and show music from the likes of Gorb and Sparke. You are invited to have drinks on the terrace overlooking the vale, or in the breath-taking War Memorial Building, before the concert in the historic Speech Room.
St Luke’s Hospice provides free care to people in Harrow and Brent living with illnesses that are no longer curable. You can come together with the musicians for a memorable night at the Summer Proms, to enable the hospice to continue its vital work. They rely on your generous support for over 70% of their funding and need to raise over £3.5 million each year in order to continue to provide free care to those in need.
The BBC Elstree Concert Band play in and around London, including performances at the Elstree and Maida Vale Studios, St James’s Church Piccadilly, Millfield Theatre, Allum Hall, St John Waterloo and Dorchester Abbey. The Band’s performances have been broadcast nationally as well as internationally through the BBC and they work support to charitable organisations such as the hospice.
Early bird tickets are £18 each until the 30th April, after which they are £20 per person.
