It was fantastic to see and hear PGS Brass open the D-Day 75 celebrations last weekend on the big stage on Southsea Common. It was a real privilege to represent the school and the city in commemorating and paying tribute to the sacrifices made by so many brave men and women. The large crowd were hugely enthusiastic about their music. The night before the choristers performed James Olsen’s special commission The Key Note of Everything to be Simplicity with other Portsmouth children and members of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
PGS Brass will be performing at Gunwharf Quays on Friday 21st June at midday as part of Portsmouth Festivities.
