We Will Remember Them
Friday 14th November 2014
On Thursday 11 November, the musicians from Queen Anne’s and the Oratory School joined forces to give a concert at St Peter’s Eaton Square, London, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.
The programme featured soloists, ensembles, joint choir and readings. The concert was attended by circa 150 parents and friends who were treated to an amazing standard of music-making. Notable performances were given by Lydia Marshall, Camille Morana, Elisabeth Ng, Eleanor Lyon, Laura Burnett, Alexandra Stewart-Ashley, Sophie Grosz-Dequenne, Emily Heath and Gabby Woodward whose composition In Flanders’ Fields was greeted enthusiastically by the audience.
It was excellent to be able to work together with the Oratory and the sound of the joint choirs singing How Lovely are thy dwellings from the Requiem by Brahms was magical. One member of the audience said it was the best of all the Remembrance events that she had been to and that she was amazed by the professionalism and standard that the boys and girls achieved.
