University Choir and Philharmonia concert

The University Choir and Philharmonia join forces for a programme by 20th-century English composers inspired by the sea. Ralph Vaughan Williams’s first symphony is a tour-de-force for orchestra and large chorus that sets verses from Walt Whitman’s poems Leaves of Grass and Passage to India which convey the power and vastness of the ocean. The concert opens with Britten’s wonderfully evocative ‘Sea Interludes’ from Peter Grimes.
