How can you improve on a concert with Southampton Concert Wind Band (SCWB) and The Mountbatten Community Choir? Well, you place it in Romsey Abbey! Put the date in your diaries for a truly memorable musical event. In the programme you will hear the choir perform Something Inside So Strong, the evocative soul song inspired by composer Labi Siffre's experiences in apartheid South Africa. Also in their play list is Bring Him Home beautifully written in the form of a prayer, from one of the most successful shows of all time, Les Miserables.

SCWB's varied programme will include movements from Shostakovich's Jazz Suite No. 2, the Waltz made famous in Stanley Kubrick's film Eyes Wide Shut. At the other end of the musical spectrum, you will hear SCWB perform the haunting O Magnum Mysterium which launched the career of composer Morten Lauridsen in 1994.

As the choir and band come together, be stirred by Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves from Verdi's opera Nabucco in all its glory. Then enjoy a musical tour of the country as they perform together Hingley's Songs of the British Isles. This is a concert not to be missed!

Tickets are priced at 10 adults / 8 concessions / 2 children and can be purchased on the door or in advance from www.ticketsource.co.uk/musicinromsey.
