The Royal Air Force Music Services is delighted to return to the West Road Concert Hall Cambridge with a special charity concert to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Royal Air Force Music Charitable Trust.
The world-class musical talents of the full-time professional musicians of the Band of the Royal Air Force Regiment will bring to life the wonderful music of stage, screen, and traditional military band repertoire, in what is sure to be a memorable concert performed by one of the finest military bands in the country.
more about the Royal Air Force Music Charitable Trust
With its objectives to raise welfare funds through the performance of live music, the Royal Air Force Music Charitable Trust primarily organises Royal Air Force fund-raising concerts in locations where the bands might otherwise not be able to perform. Through these concerts and the sale of RAF CDs and merchandise, the charity raises funds from which donations are also made to various RAF and other Service charities. However, as RAF musicians routinely undertake deployments in support of H M Forces around the world, the charity also provides welfare support to personnel whilst deployed on ‘out of area’ operations.
