Sir Michael Tippett

Preview: Petersfield Choir – A Child of our Time by Michael Tippett


The Petersfield Choir is pulling out all the stops here, with an augmented choir, an augmented SouthDowns Camerata symphony orchestra and four professional soloists – performing one of the most iconic choral works of the 20th Century.

It’s a moving and profound story of inner healing and reconciliation overcoming hatred and violence. Written against the background of the Second World War, its message is equally relevant today, and its timeless philosophy is carried by music of transcendental beauty which is both fragile and powerful.

A rare opportunity to experience this masterpiece, not to be missed. Also in the programme: Arturo Marquez ‘Danzon No. 2’.
