The European Premiere of The Sacred Veil will take place on 25 & 26 October 2019 at St. John’s Smith Square, London. Premiered at Walt Disney Concert Hall with the Los Angeles Master Chorale in February, this 12-movement work written with poet, lyricist and long-time collaborator, Charles Anthony Silvestri, tells the true story of love, life, loss and the search for solace. The Sacred Veil received unprecedented acclaim from the media, concert-goers and the artists following its premiere, and is Eric’s most extensive choral work to date.
Eric Whitacre and Charles Anthony Silvestri will participate in a pre-concert talk before each performance. The concerts will open with two of Eric Whitacre’s most loved works, Lux Aurumque and Leonardo Dreams of his Flying Machine.
VIP Tickets are available and include exclusive access to rehearsal, a private meet-and-greet with Charles Anthony Silvestri, a signed programme and priority seating for the pre-concert talk and concert.
Eric will also give a choral workshop on the afternoon on October 26. More information to be announced.
Tickets are now on sale.
