RWCMD students remember the fallen

November 9, 2017 by

Students of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama are giving an all-day event of remembrance at The National Museum of Wales, Cardiff.

On 12th November the Museum will be taken over with dance, music and poetry to mark the national day of Remembrance. This free all-day event will encompass pop-up performances of Welsh, British and French music alongside contemporary compositions, specially commissioned for the day.

A bugle call will begin at 11am followed by a two minute silence commencing a day of varied and interactive Remembrance activities.

This event will incorporate celebrations of Welsh culture, with Harp and song filling the Welsh Landscapes Gallery.  French song will be complemented by contemporary dance, and new music will be showcased in the intimate Derek Williams Gallery alongside the poetry focusing on women at home. The voices of The Remembrance Sunday Singers will be filling the entrance hall in their lunchtime concert at 1pm, including performances of music recently rediscovered.

Get crafty, learn how to march like a soldier and ‘Keep the Home Fires Burning’ alongside singers from RWCMD in our interactive sing-a-long!

The student’s work forms part of the BMus3 Concert Planning module.
