The Battle of the Somme Centenary Tour
100 screenings of the original 1916 film with Laura Rossi's score
Performed live by amateur, youth & professional orchestras from July 2016 - 2017
Somme100 FILM is an international project to mark the 100th anniversary 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.
“And these troops in the mud grinned or stared at us to a new music score by Laura Rossi, brilliantly effective”
Geoff Brown, The Times. *****
