MUSICAL youngsters will travel to London on Friday for their school’s annual Remembrance Day Concert in one of the city’s finest recital venues.

Sixty pupils from Portsmouth Grammar School’s chamber and community choirs will mark the occasion with performances of two works about the war at St John’s Smith Square, alongside The London Mozart Players and the London Chamber Choir.

The first is The Five Acts of Harry Patch by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, which was inspired by one of the last survivors of the trenches.

The second is Stephen Montague’s Requiem, The Trumpets Sounded Calling Them to the Other Side – a tribute to all those who took part in the D-Day Landings.

Both were composed specially for the school.

To get tickets for the concert at 7.30pm call the box office on 020 7222 1061 or visit sjss.org.uk.
