Description

#iPlayforPeace Armistice Day Concert 2019

A global orchestra of musicians will come together in the spirit of creativity, peace and cooperation on Sunday 10 November 2019 to set the scene with regards to post-Armistice Europe.

The Edinburgh Chamber Orchestra will perform at Edinburgh Napier University's historic Craiglockhart campus, supported by a series of short narratives and recitals of work produced by Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon. Musicians, from across the globe, will join the Edinburgh Chamber Orchestra to conclude the concert with a performance of two specially-written pieces, thanks to technology pioneered by Edinburgh Napier University's School of Arts and Creative Industries and social media live streaming.
