Voices Unwrapped: Seven Last Words

Hall One, Kings Place
£19.50-£44.50 (plus booking fee)

We team up with the BBC Singers for a richly varied Passiontide concert for Kings Place’s Voices Unwrapped series, including James Macmillan’s choral masterpiece Seven Last Words from the Cross.

Chief Conductor of the BBC Singers, Sofi Jeannin, makes her debut at Kings Place, conducting a programme that also features works by two of north America’s most distinctive musical voices: Pulitzer-prize winner Caroline Shaw (best known for her work with a cappella group Roomful of Teeth) and Californian composer Reena Esmail, whose work combines Western and Indian classical influences.  Timothy Burke’s intimate arrangement of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis  for double string quartet and chorus completes what promises to be a highlight of Kings Place’s year-long Voices Unwrapped series.

Aurora Orchestra extends grateful thanks to Andrew Blankfield and Bernadette Hillman for generously supporting this concert.
