Dr Charles Bennett’s ‘The Voyage’ in Oxford/Reading this weekend

Dr Charles Bennett has been commissioned as librettist in collaboration with composer Bob Chilcott by Age UK (Oxfordshire) for a major choral work called ‘The Voyage’.  It will be performed by a group of choirs, including youth choirs and a ‘choir of elders’, at the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford on Friday 18 March and at Reading Concert Hall on Saturday 19 March.  The project’s website, from which tickets can be purchased, is here.

See the full write-up, including quotes about composing the lyrics, at the University main page here.
