30JunChoir of King's College London in College Chapel, Strand

This concert, performed in collaboration between The Choir of King's College London and South West Essex Choir, contains the world premieres of three new pieces by composers associated with King's: Two Eagles and Empty Skies, a piece by King's PhD student Samuel Buttler which contrasts the poetry of Sara Teasdale and Emily Dickinson, using them to evoke the spirit of flying; They Shall be Comforted, also by Samuel Buttler, which explores how different cultures and religious traditions throughout history have looked at medicine and healing; and The Genuine History of the Life of Richard Turpin by Edward Nesbit, Senior Lecturer in Composition at King's, which draws upon contemporary sources to create an alternative retelling of the familiar story.

Tickets: FREE, but must be booked - book here.
