Michael Tippett: A Child of Our Time


Saturday, April 22, 2017, 8:00pm


Sanders Theatre, 45 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA

The Harvard Radcliffe Collegium Musicum, Harvard Glee Club, Radcliffe Choral Society, and Boston Modern Orchestra Project will perform Michael Tippett’s A Child of Our Time and Trevor Weston’s Griot Legacies.

Timeless themes of oppression, peace, darkness and light pervade Tippett’s 1941 composition. Weston's Griot Legacies also weaves spirituals into a modern compositional language that "hint at the spiritual's bittersweet ancestry." (Steve Smith, Boston Globe).

Harvard Choruses alumni will join the choruses during the performance on the spirituals featured in Tippett’s A Child of Our Time.

Featuring Jacquelyn Stucker, soprano | Chrystal E. Williams, mezzo soprano | Dann Coakwell, tenor | Dashon Burton, bass­-baritone
