“And these troops in the mud grinned or stared at us to a new music score by Laura Rossi, brilliantly effective.” The Times. ***** Somme100 FILM is an international project to mark the Centenary of the Battle of the Somme. We are aiming to bring together 100 live orchestral performances of the iconic 1916 film The Battle of the Somme with composer Laura Rossi’s acclaimed score, commissioned by the Imperial War Museum. Professional, amateur and youth orchestras worldwide are invited to participate, to commemorate the Somme Centenary in a very special way. We are also helping venues (churches, town halls, theatres and museums) who would like to screen the film, to find a local orchestra to perform at their venue. Performances can take place during the Centenary year from July 2016 till July 2017. As part of your live orchestral screening of Laura Rossi's acclaimed score to this iconic film, we are offering pre-concert talks about the film & music. There will also be a linked education project, working with school children with free resources available for 3 contrasting projects which will be launched on the Somme100 FILM website in September 2016.
