Ben Pedley Memorial Concert

This concert explores the theme of Remembrance. We commemorate the life of Ben Pedley, a second year Chemistry student who died in a road traffic accident in 2017. We present music that was meaningful to Ben in the first half of the programme, celebrating his love of a diverse range of songs and piano music. The second half of the concert is a performance of Karl Jenkins: The Armed Man, A Mass for Peace. In the centenary year of World War 1, this piece reminds us of the horrors of war, and the urgent need for nations to come together in peace.
