To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Vaughan Williams’ birth, the concert features three of his best-loved works. A Sea Symphony is set to the powerful and haunting poems of Walt Whitman. Orchestra, soloists and chorus combine throughout to evoke the dramatic and changing moods of the sea, and the voyages of ships under sail with their brave souls on board.
The Lark Ascending, performed by solo violinist Christian Halstead, and Five Mystical Songs for baritone solo and piano, complete the evening’s programme.
We are pleased to welcome back Kent Sinfonia and soloists Eleanor Pennell-Briggs (soprano), Philip Tebb (baritone) and Stephen Ridge (piano). The concert will be conducted by Musical Director Andrew Storey.
