COLNE Orchestra is tuning up and all set to celebrate the life of one of its past members -Titanic bandmaster Wallace Hartley - at a special concert this Sunday.
It’s the world premiere of a new concerto written by a Pendle composer specially to mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.
And it’s being performed at Holy Trinity Church in Colne, which is also celebrating its centenary this year. The church is close to where Wallace Hartley went - Colne’s Bethel Independent Methodist Chapel.
Written by Earby composer Peter Young, the concerto for violin and orchestra has been named “Wanderings and Returns: Reflections on a Musical Life”. Violinist Anne Heaton will play the violin solo for the concerto’s premiere.
