Ben helps make history at the Royal Albert Hall

According to Year 13 Ben, who sang with the Berkshire Youth Choir at the Royal Albert Hall on 9th October: ‘I can’t really describe it. I’ve performed there before, but to be in that environment in the presence of so much musical talent was absolutely incredible.’

Ben was taking part in a world premiere performance of ‘The Great War Symphony’ – a new choral symphony bringing together the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, London Youth Choir, Berkshire Youth Choir, Invictus Games Choir, Louise Alder (soprano), Joshua Ellicott (tenor) and Military Bands. The guest of honour for the evening was Prince Michael of Kent, and the event commemorated the centenary of the First World War and raised money for SSAFA .

The whole concert was broadcast on Classic FM (Digital Radio 100-102FM) on “The Full Works Concert with Jane Jones” the following day.
