The King’s Singers: Out of Darkness
You need a free IDAGIO account to purchase a ticket
About this event
The King’s Singers' Out of Darkness concert highlights a new season of hope following this difficult time of struggle. This concert features music by Tallis, Gombert, Debussy, Michel Legrand, Ned Rorem and Jacob Collier.
Music has brought so many of us joy and strength during the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Out of darkness is a powerful programme that focuses on how important music can be for carrying people through times of trouble and isolation. In the past, darkness fell on composers who had to write their music in hiding, fearing punishment for their religious beliefs. It also fell when people were forced into exile, making music far from their homelands. And in wartime, music became a welcome balm for the souls of the wounded.
Today, the shadow is still lifting from our world in quarantine. But the world never lay silent. Out of Darkness shows us how even the toughest of times can still produce so much beauty.
