D-DAY 70th ANNIVERSARY

4/6/2014

Barney was assisting Musical Director Mike Dixon for the rehearsal of the D-Day 70th Anniversary Concert at the Royal Albert Hall.

 

D-Day 70 Years On

The commemoration of the 70th anniversary of D-Day on Radio 2 culminates in a special Friday Night Is Music Night from London's Royal Albert Hall with the BBC Concert Orchestra.

Hosts Jeremy Vine, Dermot O'Leary and Louise Minchin will re-tell the story of key moments of D-Day, with performances from a fantastic line-up, including Patrick Stewart in the role of Sir Winston Churchill. Katherine Jenkins OBE will be singing a virtual duet of Well Meet Again with Dame Vera Lynn.

Dame Vera's part will be taken from a vintage recording, which will be combined with Katherine's live performance. And acclaimed folk singer and musician Seth Lakeman will perform a song he has written about his grandfather who served at D-Day and, years later, took a young Seth to Arromanches Beach to recount that fateful day.

The BBC Concert Orchestra will be joined by a band featuring musicians drawn from all three UK Armed Forces.
