The Brisbane City Pops Orchestra is proud to present a very special concert for its final programme of  2018. Remember and Commemorate will be held on Remembrance Day as well as on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice which ended World War I. It is a programme of music composed for and/or associated with wartime and will take you on a special journey down memory lane.

We will present the famous and stirring Dam Busters, Knightsbridge March and the Light Cavalry Overture. You can sing along to our two selections – Down Memory Lane and Thanks for the Memory- which are full of very popular and well-known melodies from the war era.

You will also be entertained with the beautiful Forgotten Dreams, Yesterday and a wonderful Satchmo selection!
We are thrilled to have well-known tenor Lindsay Gaffney as a guest artist, presenting You’ll Never Walk Alone, The Impossible Dream and more.

We are also delighted to have the amazing cornet player, Paula Russell, playing the beautiful Meditation.
Please join us for this very special concert as we Remember and Commemorate an important time in history through some very beautiful and poignant music.
