BBC Singers at Milton Court
The charismatic American conductor Eric Whitacre has established himself as one of the most distinctive figures on the choral scene, and with an international reputation as the composer of some of the most magical choral works of the contemporary repertoire: music which moves and stirs, and speaks to his audiences in the most direct and affecting way. Curating this evening's concert, Eric Whitacre places his own music alongside works by two other much-admired choral composers, and brings guest artists The King's Singers to perform alongside the BBC Singers.
