Choir of London Trust Bursary Scheme launch concerts

The Choir of London launched the fundraising campaign for its new Bursary Scheme for young Palestinian musicians in March with two major concerts in London (St John’s, Smith Square, 9th March) and Edinburgh (St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, 11th March). Coinciding as they did with the launch of the Choir’s recording of Lament for Jerusalem, the concerts provided a natural opportunity to return to Tavener’s monumental work in live performance. As part of these performances, the Choir also gave the world premiere performances of Triptych, a new work by one of the UK’s most exciting young composers, Tarik O’Regan.

The Choir was joined for these concerts by the Choir of London Orchestra, guest conductor Jeremy Summerly, and soloists Angharad Gruffydd Jones and Peter Crawford.
