Concerts of Remembrance

SADDLEWORTH Male Voice Choir will present its annual Concert of Remembrance at the Civic Hall, Uppermill, on Saturday, November 9 at 7.30pm.In the first half, the choir will sing a selection from their constantly changing repertoire of well-known favourites followed by a sing-along of popular world war songs.

The second half will include the Act of Remembrance with the Standard Bearer of the Royal British Legion and a reading of the poem ‘For the Fallen’.

The choir’s special guests are Wardle Anderson Brass under the baton of their MD Sean Conway.

In addition to playing a varied selection of band music, the band will take part in the Act of Remembrance with the playing of Nightfall in Camp and their lead cornet player will play the last post and reveille.

The occasion provides an opportunity for the community to join in remembering not only the fallen of two world wars but also those who have made the supreme sacrifice in more recent conflicts, or who have lost their lives through acts of terrorism.

The Deputy Mayor of Oldham and the Chair and Consort of Saddleworth Parish Council will attend the concert.

Tickets priced at £10 are available from Saddleworth Museum, Uppermill Post Office or from David Davies by calling: 01457 873182.
