Forest of Dean based community radio station Triangle Radio will broadcast a rather unique concert via the internet later this month.
As the last supersonic Concorde jet ever made (Concorde 216) moves into a new home at the Bristol Aerospace Centre, music fans will have a chance to hear a reprise of an aviation themed concert to be broadcast on Tuesday 14th & Sunday 19th February.
The broadcasts will recall the 'Innovation 216' concert held at St George's Hall in Bristol last November as part of 'The Art of Flight' series of events, where 270 performers from three brass bands and a trio of choirs came together a short take off and landing from the new Aerospace Centre, to celebrate the city's aviation heritage.
On the programme were works such as 'The Dambusters March', '633 Squadron' and 'Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines' and were performed by Lydbrook, Lydney Training and City of Bristol Learner Bands alongside Gurt Lush Choir, Bristol Man Chorus and the University of West of England (UWE) Singers.
The 'Innovation 2016' finale was commissioned by Bristol 800 and composed by Dr Liz Lane, Senior Lecturer in Composition & Performance at UWE's Computer Science & Creative Technologies Department.
It was conducted by Ian Holmes, with the choirs singing words specially written by Jennifer Henderson and members of Bristol's aerospace industry.
