The Syd Lawrence Orchestra marks the centenary of the RAF Benevolent Fund. Britain’s foremost Big Band leader Chris Dean directs those magnificent men and women of the Orchestra in a tribute to members of the RAF, both past and present.
Besides leading the 18-piece orchestra, Chris is also featured on trombone and vocals and is joined by fellow singer Sarah Eyden of The Swingle Singers. Music includes Coming In On A Wing And A Prayer, Tail End Charlie, Airmail Special, Battle Of Britain March, The Dam Busters Theme and 633 Squadron Theme, as well as a bumper selection of Big Band favourites and a backdrop of thematic film clips.
Heroes of the Skies is presented by the BBC’s Nick Owen, renowned for his work on Good Morning with Anne and Nick and Wish You Were Here as well as his current post at BBC Midlands Today.
The RAF Benevolent Fund is the RAF’s leading welfare charity, with a proud tradition of aiding all serving and former members of the RAF and their families.
The concert will take place at Cadogan Hall – a fantastic location in the heart of Chelsea that has become one of London’s leading venues. The Hall’s 950 seats, excellent acoustic and luxurious surroundings makes it the first choice for some of the UK’s top orchestras.
