“It feels like the pinnacle of everything we have achieved over the last two years, which would not even be a glimmer of a dream without the amazing support we have received from Help for Heroes.”

The Invictus Games Choir will perform at their most prestigious venue yet on Tuesday evening (9th October) as they will entertain over 5000 audience members at the Royal Albert Hall.

James Belmont, an Invictus Games Choir member said: “This is what we have been working hard for and the Royal Albert Hall is the gold standard.”

The evening is the world premiere performance of a beautiful, moving, and an unforgettable new piece of music.

The Invictus Games Choir are performing in a mass choir singing alongside the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, the London Youth Choir and Berkshire Youth Choir with music from the world-renowned Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

27 Invictus Games Choir members will perform throughout the evening and have the honour of performing the National Anthem.

Sabrina Dunstan, a choir member, said ahead of the performance: “I’m so incredibly excited to be performing at the Royal Albert Hall on such a special moment in our history- what an honour."

“Once we are up there on stage my biggest challenge will be to compose myself whilst in the midst of such a moving experience- there will definitely be lumps in our throats which will make the challenge of singing just a little bit more interesting!"

"I cannot wait to spend the next 4 days immersed in this project with my Invictus Games Choir family.”

The choir have been rehearsing all weekend at Tedworth House Recovery Centre and getting ready for their performance of a lifetime.

Good luck to the Invictus Games Choir!
