Sunday 11th November 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, a war in which 250,000 boys under the age of 19 fought. It is estimated that half of those young people who fought on the front line were wounded, died or taken prisoner. We honour them on this poignant occasion through a concert of remembrance and hope, performed by talented young musicians from across the UK.
The concert includes a celebration of music, art, readings and poetry, culminating in Mozart’s Requiem, one of the most famous choral works in the classical repertoire.
The concert has been made possible by the support from the Merchant Taylors’ Company, one of the Great 12 Livery Companies in the City of London.
