A new event for the Band in 2018 will be a performance of music inspired by the flower and dog show at the Mansion in Beckenham Park on a date close to midsummer.
In 2018 we celebrate 25 years of BWE music making. We also celebrate the sustained impact of a collaboration with Chris Hussey which began with the Making Music's Adopt a Compser Scheme. This is the tenth tenth year of a partnership that has continued to flourish.
The programme will include:
György Ligeti Lux Aeterna
Johann Johannsson A Model Of The Universe (from The Theory of Everything)
Nigel Clarke Gagarin
Gustav Holst The Planets – Venus: The Bringer of Peace
Michael Nyman The Departure (from Gattaca)
John Williams Star Wars
