Other special additions for this concert included a selection entitled Songs That Won The War led by the nationally and internationally acclaimed singer Amanda Goldthorpe-Hall. Indeed her return for the band’s patriotic finale spurred the audience into even finer voice as the familiar strains of Jerusalem and Rule Britannia resounded around the dockyard.
Perhaps most moving of all, however, was the opening to the finale – a spectacular Battle of Trafalgar musical montage complete with dramatic narration by Tom Hodge MBE.
Another fine accomplishment by a band which never fails to amaze with its versatility and liveliness of spirit!
Don’t miss the band’s return to the dockyard on Saturday 5th September in a timely Last Night of the Proms spectacula
