Friday 7 June 2019
Portsmouth Music Hub will kick off commemorative events on 7 June, with a performance on Southsea Common of a special composition for D-Day 75.
In the early evening, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra will perform its own D-Day 75 composition on Southsea Common. The piece, written by James Olsen for a specially formed young person’s choir, is inspired by the reminiscences of D-Day veterans and the D-Day Story.
The evening will conclude with a children’s film screening on the big screen at Southsea Common. The film that gets aired will be voted on by the public.
