STUDIO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA  –  The Battle of the Somme


A commemorative evening of music and film to mark the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme.

The Imperial War Museum’s film ‘The Battle of the Somme’ is a compelling record of a key battle of World War 1, and first feature–length documentary of combat. PLEASE NOTE – this film is only suitable for those over 12 years due to violent scenes.

Made by cinematographers Geoffrey Malins & J. B. McDowell, who risked their lives filming at the front line, it provides an invaluable insight to the battle. 

20 million people saw the silent film in 1916, and it remains one of the most watched films in British cinema history, only beaten in box office records by Star Wars.

Composer Laura Rossi’s acclaimed orchestral score was written to accompany this iconic film, and will be performed live by the Studio Symphony Orchestra. ‘And these troops in the mud grinned or stared at us to a new music score by Laura Rossi, brilliantly effective…’ Geoff Brown, The Times *****
