RAF Concert Band Wing Commander Duncan Stubbs conductor Flight Lieutenant Matthew Little vocalist Emer McParland soloist Radio 2 presenter Ken Bruce
This year's prestigious Royal Air Force in Concert Tour officially commemorates the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain with an exciting and nostalgic programme of music that will conjure up the atmosphere surrounding Britain's 'finest hour'.
The varied programme, conducted by the RAF’s Principal Director of Music Wing Commander Duncan Stubbs and performed by the Royal Air Force Bands, ranges from the Battle of Britain March by Goodwin and the Fighter Command March by Alwyn to Gershwin’s A Foggy Day in London Town and Rhapsody in Blue. Sing along to I’ll be Seeing You’and Blue Birds Over the White Cliffs of Dover and enjoy the Big Band swing sound of the RAF Squadronaires as they perform a Glenn Miller tribute and the trumpet classic Tico Tico.
Flight Lieutenant Matthew Little will again delight audiences with his vocal talents, and this year he will be joined by Emer McParland. The evening will be compered by Radio 2 presenter Ken Bruce.
A wonderful trip down memory lane, this flag waving, musical tribute to the men and women who took part in the Battle of Britain is not to be missed.
The concert is held in support of the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust. The Trust was established in 2005 to help foster a spirit of ‘airmindedness’ in young people. The charity also supports the wider RAF family of charities plus RAF station-based initiatives that benefit Service personnel and their families.
