This year marks the 50th display season for the Royal Air Force Aerobic Team, The Red Arrows, and to celebrate the RAF in Concert Tour 2014 has been dedicated to the awe-inspiring performances.
The 15 date tour, which started in October, lasts until 12 December when they will play out at the Lighthouse, Poole, on 12 December. To enable the orchestra to travel with ease between venues we have been able to provide a free of charge 18T Box Truck for all their musical instruments and equipment. Although we play a small part in the RAF in Concert, we are very proud to be able to support such an exhilarating and worthwhile concert.
The RAF in Concert has compiled a programme of music which encapsulates the Red Arrows skilled, beautiful and sometimes dangerous air performances to lift the audience and transfer them to the cockpit.
The Royal Air Force in Concert said: “Since their first public display in 1965, few nationally-significant events have taken place without the Red Arrows playing a part in our collective celebrations and commemorations. They really do epitomise the ‘Best of British!’”
The RAF in Concert have managed to incorporate something for everyone including a tribute to Andrew Lloyd Webber, Big Band numbers such as Mack the Knife and the military marches The Jaguar March and The Royal Air Force March Past. They have even squeezed in The Beatles and Nessun Dorma.
The Royal Air Force in Concert has one request though, that all attendees wear something red to show their support for the ‘fantastic aerobatic team.’
