A Child of Our Time: A Protest against Persecution and Tyranny - A Message of Peace
The 65 singers of the Gonzaga University Concert Choir and 40 professional instrumentalists of Incendo Music Ensemble present a dramatic performance of Michael Tippett’s A Child of Our Time. Composed in 1939-1941, this secular oratorio is inspired by events in Germany: the arrest of a young Jewish refugee for assassination of a German diplomat and ensuing Kristallnacht. Tippett’s composition uses five African American spirituals interspersed throughout the work to convey hope in the face of oppression. A pacifist message of reconciliation and understanding underscores the drama, engaging with issues of our time and leaving listeners with a sense of hope and purpose.
Performed in English with supertitles and projected imagery.
