Thread: Premiere 11 March 1917 - Bruce Broughton

  1. Premiere 11 March 1917 - Bruce Broughton

    Hello everyone,

    I wanted to share with you the socially distanced premiere of a new piece of music from the pen of Bruce Broughton entitled 11 March 1917.

    To bring this piece to life, I worked alongside The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Living History Society to bring to life some of the events which took placed around the days leading up to Sunday 11th March 1917 which marks the day in which my Great Grandfather Henry Nichols was killed in action whilst serving with The 1/6th Battalion, The Royal Warwickshire Regiment.

    Another exciting aspect of the project was a specially commissioned piece of art which was completed just last week by Christa Hook which you will be able to see at the start of the video.

    Although this piece of music has been set on a specific date which has a personal significance to me, I am hoping that anyone who performs this piece of music will be able to adapt the music to bring their own relatives stories alive.

    I hope you enjoy the socially distanced premiere of 11 March 1917 which you can view at the following link - https://youtu.be/lbOxoKTRcSc.

    Best Wishes,

    Micah Dominic Parsons

  8. Hello everyone,

    Thank you so much for your kind remarks. I have to admit all aspects of the project from the artwork from Christa Hook to the video featuring The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Living History Society as wellas the recording of the music could not have been more perfectly timed. I really hope to hear some of you play this new piece of music in the near future.

    Best Wishes,

    Micah,

    Maybe I missed a post about it, but I'm not aware of how a player can purchase the music. Is there a source at this point? Thanks!
