Innovation, aviation and celebration

Innovation, aviation and celebration: A concert under the wings of Concorde

Join Aerospace Bristol for a musical extravaganza that celebrates more than 100 years of aerospace engineering in Bristol.

For the first time, Liz Lane’s Innovation 216 will be performed under the wings of an aircraft that inspired it: the iconic Concorde. From the Boxkite to the Blenheim Bomber, Brabazon, Britannia and, of course, Concorde, Innovation 216 traces Bristol’s aerospace history through the reminiscences and memories of past and present workers in the industry.

Other flight-themed pieces that will feature on the night include Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines, 633 Squadron, Dam Busters, Enter the Galaxies and Fly me to the Moon.

This special performances features:

Lydbrook Band
Airbus Filton Workplace Choir
Bristol Man Chorus
City of Bristol Choir
Gurt Lush Choir
City of Bristol Learners Band
Lydbrook Training Band
Lydney Training Band
Members of UWE Singers

And will be conducted by Ian Holmes, David Ogden and Sam Burns

Don’t miss out on what is sure to be a very special evening – perfectly timed for a Valentine’s Day celebration – as around 250 massed bands and choirs aged 7-70+ including one of the West Country’s premier brass bands and top Bristol choirs, depict the beauty and spaciousness of flight in the presence of the last Concorde ever to fly.
