Glouces­ter­shire Salutes, Glouces­ter Cathe­dral

Cotswold Life - - INSIDE -

Glouces­ter Cathe­dral hosted a up­lift­ing evening of beau­ti­ful mu­sic, poignant read­ings and thought­ful re­flec­tions to mark 100 years since the end of WW1, the for­ma­tion of the RAF and to recog­nise the con­tri­bu­tion made by the peo­ple of Glouces­ter­shire. The first half fo­cused on re­mem­brance, ac­knowl­edg­ing the jour­ney of those who served, who sac­ri­ficed and sur­vived, with the sec­ond half fea­tur­ing up­lift­ing and stir­ring mu­sic with the theme of hope and cel­e­bra­tion.

The evening fea­tured the D-day Dar­lings, fresh from ITV’S Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent, and Glouces­ter­shire Sym­phony Orches­tra, sup­ported by Glouces­ter­shire Po­lice Male Voice Choir. All pro­ceeds from the event helped fund the ABF: The Sol­diers’ Char­ity and Alabaré’s Glouces­ter­shire Homes for Vet­er­ans. N
