CONCERT BY BBC SINGERS
FRIDAY 6 OCTOBER 2017 6:00pm
PACE
Once again, the BBC Singers are delighted to perform as the guests of the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA) in a concert celebrating the work of black and minority ethnic composers.

The concert follows BASCA’s Europe-wide call for scores from their members and is a fantastic opportunity to hear new and challenging choral music, conducted by James Morgan, in the beauty of St Gabriel’s Church, Pimlico.

Admission to this recording is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that as not everyone who asks for tickets uses them, to make sure we have a full house we send out more tickets than there are places. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people so please arrive early.

Exploring themes of slavery and freedom, Mighty River combines contemporary classical techniques with spirituals which were introduced to Hull in 1871 by the Fisk Jubilee Singers, an African-American a cappella choir of ex-slaves. The piece, written for orchestra, takes its inspiration from William Wilberforce the English politician, philanthropist and leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade who was, very fittingly, a native of Hull. Part of PRSF New Music Biennal 2017. Listen to the live broadcast from Hull: Errollyn Wallen's brilliant CONCERTO GROSSO (commissioned by Orchestra of the Swan and published by Peters Edition) will be touring in October and November in the UK. The performers are Chineke! featuring Chi-chi Nwanoku on double bass, Tai Murry, violin and Isata Kanneh-Mason, piano. Conductor is Shaun Matthew.
