The Bardi Wind Orchestra players are now once again rehearsing enthusiastically for their annual charity concert at De Montfort Hall which is being presented in association with the Oadby and Wigston Lions Club.
The chosen charity for 2023 is the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) which may seem a little unusual for a city located 100 miles away from the sea, but we have all seen the bright orange and navy rescue boats when we’ve been on seaside holidays. Those same boats often appear in TV news items and, who knows, any of us or our families and friends could have need of their help at some point. The RNLI is a charity and is independent of the government – less than 1% of their funding comes from government sources, their lifesaving service depends on the generosity of their supporters. The interest created by the BBCs ‘Saving Lives at Sea’ programmes has done a great deal to promote the excellent work done by the RNLI – real unsung heroes.
The title of the Bardi Wind concert is, appropriately, ‘Heroes’ with a programme of music taken from a range of superhero movies including Superman, The Avengers, The Incredibles, Star Wars and more. Conductor David Calow will be joined by guest singers David Morris and Rebecca Temple as well as regular compere Colin Blackler. A great afternoon of memorable music is guaranteed!
