City of Bristol Choir: Music of Remembrance

Sunday 13th November at 6pm, St George’s Bristol

City of Bristol Choir performs a concert for Remembrance Sunday featuring two intensely moving pieces with themes of consolation, peace, and reconciliation: Richard Blackford’s gripping and vivid Pietà, and Vaughan Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem. Completing the programme is an arrangement of a tender Ukrainian Lullaby for saxophone and orchestra, remembering the casualties not only of World Wars but also of recent conflicts. The choir will be joined by the renowned saxophonist Amy Dickson and the strings of the Bristol Ensemble.

Tickets £18 to £25, half price for students in full time education and under 18s, available from City of Bristol Choir’s website (no booking fee), and St George’s box office online and by phone on 0117 929 4929.
