Honour Choir ConcertSt Luke's, Swinton Park Road, Irlams o'th'height, M6 7WR
Sunday 11th November 2018
Honour choir was formed for an event by Quays Culture in 2014 to commemorate the outbreak of World War One which involved hundreds of local people from all walks of life coming together at MediaCityUK in front of a crowd of over 5000 people to perform specially written music.
Following requests from original choir members, Honour Choir was reformed in 2015 and performed in Cornelia Parker’s War Room at the Whitworth Art Gallery. Since then, the choir have performed at numerous local and international events including the Salford commemoration of The Somme, concerts in France and the Menin Gate ceremony in Ypres during the summer of 2018.
The concert at St Luke’s is the highlight of the weekend where the centenary of the end of The War will be commemorated. The performance involves songs and spoken word with an emphasis on Salford and Manchester experiences, followed by the Honour Song Cycle, a piece composed specially for the choir by Andrew J Smith.
Entrance to the concert is free and all are welcome.
