Take part in the London premiere of a major new piece for orchestra and chorus which draws on the experience of its composer, Nigel Osborne, working with refugees in Syria, Uganda, Bosnia and Myanmar. The piece is in several episodes, each representing refugee journeys by reflecting the music of the places through which they pass. An accompanying film includes a sound track which features three pre-recorded musical ‘journeys’ by Sufi musicians, serving as bridges between the ‘tutti’ episodes.
