Thursday, April 16th I’ll return to London to conduct the National Youth Choir of Great Britain. (NYCGB). This is the same group that I conducted in the premiere of The Stolen Child with the King’s Singers last spring; a truly phenomenal choir, led by their intrepid founder, gentleman and scholar Mike Brewer (OBE).
On the program, I’ll conduct:
- Lux Aurumque
- Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine
- Water Night
- The Stolen Child
- A Boy and a Girl
- Sleep, My Child
- Animal Crackers Vol. I
- Animal Crackers Vol. II
The concert will take place in Southwark Cathedral, the oldest cathedral in London. Here’s a picture:
And here’s the inner hall:
I can’t even imagine what Lux will sound like with this choir in this hall. And Water Night. And Cloudburst. *Head explodes*
And here’s a video of me conducting the NYCGB in last year’s premiere of The Stolen Child. In typical British fashion, the singers began learning this music three days before the concert.
