About This Event

The BBC Singers perform one of the greatest of choral works, Rachmaninov’s Vespers, first performed in 1915, as part of the JAM on the Marsh festival’s commemoration of World War I. Canada-based, Swiss conductor Michael Zaugg makes his BBC Singers and JAM on the Marsh debut conducting the Rachmaninov and a world premiere, Songs from the Marshes, by Scottish composer Rory Boyle. This Festival Commission has words about the Romney Marsh, Kent and local community by the outstanding poet, Claudia Daventry.
