Description

John Knight - A Tribute and Celebration

A Tribute and Celebration has been arranged to commemorate the lives of John Knight and his wife Gladys (who died last September) on Sunday 2nd April at Winchester Guildhall, commencing at 14.30. Appropriately, a band comprising former Hampshire Youth Concert Band members who still play regularly, directed by Chris Davis, will provide music for this occasion, together with shared anecdotes and readings in celebration of the lives of this much loved and highly respected couple who gave unstintingly of themselves to ensure that the musical talents, character and varied abilities of selected young people throughout Hampshire would fulfil their true potential.

In order to manage the numbers anticipated, admission will be strictly by ticket only, issued by ‘Eventbrite’ at a cost of £15.00 each. Much of this income will cover costs of hall-hire and light refreshments but a modest surplus has been built into the cost of each ticket with the objective of funding the commissioning a new piece of music for brass bands. The resulting score will become a fitting legacy to perpetuate the memory of John’s and Gladys’s vision, dedication and sheer hard work with Hampshire Youth Concert Band and other bands with which they were associated over several decades, that can be circulated to brass bands worldwide.

The database of past members is rather incomplete so please forward this information to anyone for whom you have contact details. Numbers for this event will be limited so please book early. Additional information can be obtained from admin@jandgknightfoundation.co.uk or 01264 352560.
