Design Series #1 - Until it so desires

 

The first concert in ORA Singers' new DESIGN SERIES, where a different designer is asked to collaborate on each of nine concerts at LSO St. Luke's, creating a unique design to enhance the musical programme and the fantastic space of LSO St. Luke's Jerwood Hall.

Musical settings of the text from the Song of Songs are often as sensuous and highly-charged as the text itself. In this concert, ORA Singers dip into this wealth of beautiful music with masterpieces from the Renaissance and the modern-day, including ORA-commissioned reflections by Jonathan Dove and John Barber.

 

Tickets not yet available, please check back soon.
