Featuring the world-premiere of The Sleepers by London Symphonia Composer-in-Residence Scott Good
Baritone Phillip Addis and the Amabile Choirs of London join London Symphonia for the world premiere of The Sleepers by our very own composer-in-residence, Scott Good. Inspired by the poetry of Walt Whitman, the work harnesses the beauty of the choir and power of the orchestra to portray the poem’s emotional essence.
“I was inspired to set the poem The Sleepers to music because I can envision how Whitman’s humanist message of peace and ‘we are all in this together’ will resonate powerfully in today’s troubled climate.” ~ Composer, Scott Good
Aaron Copland’s Clarinet Concerto (1947-49), performed by principal clarinettist Graham Lord, and Joan Tower’s Made in America (2005) complete this program of music from both sides of the border.
