It takes place at Holy Cross Church, on the corner of Ashington Road and Bettridge Road in Fulham, on Saturday 17 November at 7.30pm.

Featuring works by Edward Elgar, Maurice Duruflé, Josef Rheinberger, Morten Lauridsen and Sergei Rachmaninov, the evening explores the beauty of remembrance compositions.

Geraldine Cooper from Fulham Camerata said: “This is an Armistice Day memorial concert which marks the debut of our new music director, Harry Castle, whose youth, enthusiasm and style set the tone.

“It includes songs from five nations and a world premiere from Ben Rowarth our composer in residence, entitled We Will Remember Them, which captures the spirit of the concert.”

The concert lasts around two hours, with refreshments available during the interval.

Tickets are £15 (£10 students, U16s free) via www.fulhamcamerata.com.
