The Angry Planet

Immerse yourself in the Three Choirs Festival's Thursday evening concert, featuring music by Stanford, Bob Chilcott, Eric Whitacre and Paul Mealor.

About this event

Dates, address & more

In a forest at night, animals in danger of extinction speak to us of the fragility of our world and our need to love and care for our environment. Powerful and haunting music from Bob Chilcott brings to life this dream-vision exploring our relationship with the world around us as we journey through darkness towards the dawn. The poignant song ends in cautious hope as the innocent voices of children answer the question 'Can we learn how to live with this world?' with an enigmatic 'Perhaps'. The Three Cathedral Choirs also sing well-loved works by Stanford, a festival commission from Paul Mealor and Eric Whitacre’s shimmering Lux aurumque.

Tickets from £15
