HUDDERSFIELD CHARITY SHOW: THE BAND OF THE YORKSHIRE REGIMENT PLAY FOR THE YORKSHIRE REGIMENT TRUST
The Band of The Yorkshire Regiment
At Huddersfield Town Hall, a combined charity show will be put up by The Band of the Yorkshire the coming month to honor a complete century since the eruption of World War I.
The performance by the band will be featured by the concert on 15th November, Saturday at quarter past seven. The show also includes performances from Kirklees Massed Choir and Pipers from the Scots Guards association.
This musical will feature compositions from the last century with extracts from superbly evocative Hymn to The Fallen of John Williams and Saving Private Ryan of the same artist.
The show will begin with homage to the Royal Air Force and especially music of Eric Coates to The Dambusters. It will also feature Glen Miller with everlasting favorites such as Little Brown Jug, Moonlight Serenade and In The Mood. The choir and band will unite to lead the listeners in playing all the most loved numbers from both the World War One and Two.
A collection of compositions has been organized especially for the event to be performed by the pipers. Meanwhile, the singing group will be playing Hallelujah of Leonard Cohen and music from Cats and Les Miserables. In the guidance of the Daniel Roberts, new music director, the choir was arranged late in 2012. At the Huddersfield town hall, it will be their third performance which has already raised over £20,000 for various fundraisings.
The Yorkshire Regiment Trust, a fundraising group sustaining military and their families who are in trouble or need, will get all the profits from the show.
