Tours and events
Gloucestershire Music performs at the Menin Gate
During the last week of July 2019 Gloucestershire Music embarked on a five day tour of Belgium with young musicians from around the county. The orchestra kicked off their first performance in Ostend with an incredible performance of music from ‘The Incredibles’ basked in beautiful Belgian sunshine and cold water in hand. During the days that followed we visited Brussels Musical Instrument Museum, visited Gent and held concerts in Bruges, Kortrijk and Ypres with a memorable performance of ‘I Vow to Thee’ and ‘Dear Lord and Father’ during the last post ceremony at the Menin Gate. The Menin Gate performance struck a chord with our respectful musicians as we had visited Tyne Cot cemetery and the Flanders Fields museum earlier that day. We are so proud of the standard of musicianship shown and now we’re going to cool down after some astonishing temperatures.
