The wonderfully moving Birmingham Military Community Choir will also be performing. The Choir has been founded by the Royal British Legion, working in partnership with Birmingham Bach Choir and supported by grants from the Mayor's fund and the Armed Forces Community Covenant Fund .

Gary say's " This concert is to say thank you to all those brave service personnel and to remember the many who made the ultimate sacrifice so we could enjoy the freedom we do today" .


The Royal British Legion and the Royal Air Force Association will be in attendance as will hopefully be a number of surviving veterans .


The Old Rep Theatre itself was 100 years old in 2013 . and 2015 would have been Frank Sinatra's 100th birthday .
