THIS UNCERTAIN WORLD: WAR, PASSION AND LOVE
Join Invicta Voices and Invicta Upper Voices for a programme of music that brings together the emotions of war, passion and love.
The modern world can be an uncertain and daunting place and the works presented in this concert will take listeners on a journey of discovery in to choral music from the 20th and 21st century.
Highlighting the works of female composers, this concert will also feature pieces from their male counterparts as well as specifically commissioned pieces for the Equator Women of the World Festival.
