A charity concert by the Dorset Police male voice choir is to include the first UK performance of ‘Lest we forget’, a song of remembrance composed by Dorset author Ron Dawson and trombonist Kevin Morgan, both of whom live near Blandford. The concert is to raise funds for the Pilgrim Bandits, a charity which supports service men and women who have lost limbs whilst on duty, many in Afghanistan.
The concert is on Saturday 29th September at the Boscombe Salvation Army Hall in Palmerston Road and begins at 7.30.
The song came about when Ron was reading a copy of the British Legion Magazine and the words ‘Lest we forget’ literally struck a chord within him. He immediately began to write the lyrics and a basic melody and, having little musical experience or skill, Ron took his ‘song’ to his friend, Kevin Morgan, Principal Trombonist with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Kevin liked what he heard and they worked together to compose ‘Lest we forget’, a song for Remembrance and Repatriation. Now, only a few months later, choirs and bands across the UK and as far away as New Zealand and Canada will be performing it during Remembrance services, festivals and concerts.
In aid of the Jigsaw Appeal fundraising for an improved Women’s Health and Cancer Unit at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital, “Cabaret Carousel”, the one-night-only spectacular, will be showcasing the best local talent at the newly-refurbished O2 Academy in Boscombe.
