David WoodrowFormer BBC Radio Norfolk presenter, Tony Mallion of Cliff Park Community Church, Gorleston, will be the host; musical director, David Woodrow (see photo right), will conduct a wide programme of popular works ranging from Vaughan Williams’ Somerset folk songs to a selection of Disney classics as well as the traditional patriotic songs Rule Britannia, Jerusalem, and Land of Hope and Glory. There will be plenty of opportunity for the audience to join in as well as waving the Union flags which will be provided. The band of over 30 musicians will also be joined by the Norfolk Choral Fellowship conducted by Elayne Green
‘”We presented this style of evening a couple of years ago and people really enjoyed the concert and then the traditional finale” said David Woodrow. “This time we can also add the Choral Fellowship. It is a real celebration of this very British occasion and the Royal Albert Hall which is its home”. Tony Mallion added “In the past I was fortunate enough to get tickets for the Last Night at the Albert Hall so it will be such a joy to help recreate something of that atmosphere in Norwich”
Norfolk Fellowship Brass was formed in 2002 with musicians from Salvation Army centres around Norfolk and Suffolk. They meet twice a month to rehearse and put on around four or five concerts each year. As well as enjoying performing and presenting something of the Christian message the band raises money for a variety of causes. “We are so pleased this time to be supporting the valuable work of the The Salvation Army’s drop-in centre which shows the love of Jesus in a practical way to so many needy people” said David
