WW1

The exact centenary of the declaration of World War 1 is on the 4th August and we feel very privileged to have been asked to take part in Naming Names – a joint concert with Belgian musicians in the Paul Rans Ensemble to mark the launch of the In Flanders Fields Museum’s ‘List of Names’ project on that day.  The four year project aims to collect the names of all the people who died on Belgian soil as a result of the War – civilian or military, adults or children, former allies or former enemies, regardless of their nationality.  As the Museum’s website makes clear, the centenary of the outbreak of the war is a ‘perfect opportunity to re-think’ and remember.  As well as this performance in Ieper, we hope that we’ll be able to bring the same concert to London very soon afterwards.
