One hundred years on from the end of the First World War, Cheltenham Philharmonic Orchestra presents a concert of remembrance and contemplation, as a poignant tribute to all those affected by the horrors of war.
Under conductor Stephen Belinfante, the programme features Britten's powerful Sinfonia da Requiem and Vaughan Williams's Pastoral Symphony, as well as the UK premier of Alfred Tubb's Memorial for Quintinshill (May 1915) and The Unknown Warrior.
A spokeswoman for the orchestra said: "Alfred Tubb is a local composer and we are privileged to be premiering these two works. We are enjoying rehearsing this evocative and moving music."
Tickets are priced £12 for adults, £6 students, under-16s free and are available from Cheltenham Town Hall box office, The Wilson tourist office and at the door.
