sans-serif;”>On Remembrance Day, 11 November at 3.00 pm, this year people from across the Snowy-Monaro will gather for a commemorative concert at Cooma Ex-Services Club.

Organised by Snowy Monaro Arts Council, with the support of Regional Arts NSW and South East Arts, the aim of the event is to bring people ‘together to remember’ and to celebrate the strength of the human spirit through music during times of conflict.

Ninety six years ago people from this district gathered when the Men from Snowy River Recruiting March made its way from Delegate through Cooma, Nimmitabel, Cooma, Bredbo and Michelago toward Goulburn to enlist for the First World War.

One of these Men from Snowy River, Ernest Corey, who joined the March at Cooma went on to be the only soldier to receive the Military Medal with three bars. The Ernest Corey Memorial stands in Vale Street and Corey’s descendants are local residents today.

At the 11 November concert instrumentalists and vocalists will present a repertoire of music which has inspired, encouraged and brought joy to the hearts of people – from those on the front lines to those keeping the home fires burning, to those mourning loved ones. Among the many items are the Irish patriotic song “The Minstrel Boy”, the “Colonel Bogey March” and “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”.
