Elgar The Music Makers Listen
Enjoy a programme celebrating the joy of travel and music through vibrant choral and orchestral works in the first evening of music at this year’s Three Choirs Festival.
After a year of lockdown, what better way could there be to celebrate than with Copland’s defiant, blazing Fanfare for the Common Man. And with restrictions beginning to lift, our programme turns to the joy – and drama – of travelling, with Beethoven’s optimistic Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage and Vaughan Williams’s Songs of Travel.
Closing the programme, Elgar’s The Music Makers takes tunes from all his best-loved works to form a reflective ode that celebrates creativity in all its forms.
