FESTIVAL FINALE: SONGS OF WAR, CUCKOOS AND A WITCH

OKEHAMPTON CHORAL SOCIETY, DEVONPORT PARK COMMUNITY CHOIR, WEST DEVON BENEFICE CHOIR with ANDREW WILSON & LUCY LUXMOORE
Soloists: GEOFFREY BERSEY and MORAG THOMSON FINDLAY

Songs of Dartmoor, Napoleonic Wars, American War of 1812 (including a world premiere of 3 x songs written by an American PoW in 1815) and Conscientious Objectors of First World War, plus ‘The Tavistock Witch’ by Andrew Wilson.

Part of the Dartmoor Resonance Music Festival – a musical journey through time at ten venues across Dartmoor, 16th–24th June 2018, marking the 20th anniversary of the Dartmoor Society.

The Dartmoor Society is proud to present a unique 9-day midsummer music festival celebrating composers and performers of sacred and secular music, from prehistory to the present day, all inspired by Dartmoor.

We have gathered together a wondrous diversity of musicians that represent a rich cultural thread reaching out to communities on Dartmoor, in Britain and beyond.

From our flagship Dartmoor Resonance Festival Orchestral Concert, conducted by Simon Ible, to the Dartmoor Pack Pony and Minstrel Pilgrimage Walk using trails across the open moor, it’s a masterclass in excellence for everyone to enjoy. Several newly composed pieces will be premiered including John Woolrich’s reworked ‘Wistman’s Wood’.

Dartmoor has fine musical traditions and new music innovation that’s all very much alive today.

For full details of all the events in the festival please see the Dartmoor Resonance Music Festival page on the Dartmoor Society website.
