Concert Information

The BBC Singers and Owain Park present the most beautiful reminder possible that American composers have supercharged choral music’s modern renaissance.

Whether with the heavenly harmonies of Eric Whitacre or the strange contemporary beauty of Nico Muhly’s sound tapestries, American choral music has expanded horizons and exploded possibilities. That process was well underway at the time of Samuel Barber’s bold and evocative Reincarnations, written in the mid twentieth century, and remains on track courtesy of a new generation of creative, communicative and original composers personified by Jake Runestad and Gabriela Lena Frank.
