This Saturday evening Lancaster University students, friends and family will have an opportunity to see the University of Lancaster Music Society (ULMS) Wind Band give a concert in the Great Hall in aid of Help for Heroes.
The music for the evening has been selected in honour of the troops. The programme will feature some military pieces, including the Dambusters March and Hymn to the Fallen, the latter taken from the film ‘Saving Private Ryan’. These pieces will be set alongside a diverse selection of music spanning various genres; these ranging from classical works to Disney medleys and well-known musical showtunes from the West End, all performed by a large band of over fifty musicians.
All money raised from tickets sales will go to Help for Heroes, a charity in support of those British troops who have been wounded in ongoing conflicts. Tickets for the concert will be available on the door at £3 for students with a full price ticket costing £5.
This year’s wide and varied concert series from ULMS will culminate in their own Proms concert performance in June, a prominent event intended to round off this year’s schedule. In 2009 ULMS entered its 30th year, and the society has been celebrating its anniversary with an accomplished series of performances. This has included a highly successful Christmas concert which took place at Lancaster Cathedral in December and was enjoyed by audience and performers alike.
