CALLING ALL SINGERS! The Great War Symphony, U.S. Premiere, Carnegie Hall, New YorkFri Feb 2 2018
The result is The Great War Symphony which will be premièred at London's Royal Albert Hall on 9th October 2018 in aid of SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, and in partnership with Classic FM. The work is also currently being recorded at Abbey Road Studios for release later this year.
A month after the world premiere, The Great War Symphony receives its U.S. première at New York’s Carnegie Hall on 11th November 2018, the exact centenary of the Armistice. For this, Patrick is looking for singers to join him on stage in New York. “The poignancy of performing the U.S. Premiere of the work on Armistice Day makes this a really special event and I’m hoping to have a large group of singers with me to mark this unique occasion. We already have choirs singed up from the U.K., U.S., and Germany, and I would love a contingent from Australia, not least because I’ve referenced Gallipoli in the work. It’s open to individual singers as well as full choirs and is being organised by Distinguished Concerts International New York (www.dciny.org), so do get in touch if you are interested in joining me.”
Conceived for and dedicated to the bravery and sacrifice of those who lost their lives in the First World War, the performance is sure to be highly emotive experience.
