LYSO - The Wreck of the Titanic - Friday 2nd July 2010, 7.30pm - Preston Guild Hall The Wreck of the Titanic is a project based on the sinking of the Titanic, which will run through spring and summer 2010 and features a large scale concert at the Guild Hall, Preston on Friday 2 July. This is a collaborative project led by the Lancashire, Cumbria, and Liverpool Music Services, and the Liverpool Maritime Museum. A particularly significant part of the project is a major commission from the composer David Bedford called 'The Wreck of the Titanic' for professional ensemble, Youth Orchestra, Wider Opportunities groups and Youth Choruses, to be performed at the concert on the 2 July. The concert will feature the LYSO, the Lancashire Sinfonietta, a massed chorus formed from Lancashire secondary schools, a children's chorus, a Wider Opportunities instrumental group and dramatic representations of the final moments of the Titanic underscored by music composed by students using ICT.
