No Voice Unheard

No Voice Unheard
A huge number of composers suffered during World War II, and a whole generation was lost in the Holocaust, virtually wiping out a strand of European modernism. OperaCoast is presenting a pair of concerts in Brighton (2/5/2015) and Lewes (1/5/2015) as part of the Brighton Festival Fringe which explore the music of composers who were displaced or killed in the events of World War II and the Holocaust. Instrumentalist from the Trinity Laban Conservatoire join soloists from Opera Coast, musical director Gregory Rose and pianist Nigel Foster to perform music by Victor Ullmann, Alexander Zemlinsky, Pavel Haas, Erwin Schulhoff, Hans Krasa, and Paul Hindemith.

OperaCoast is a weekend opera workshop that takes place at Eastbourne in Sussex. Launched in the end of 2011, the project aims to bring together singers of different ages and backgrounds from all over the world to explore the psychology of opera. This summer they are performing Massenet's Manon.

OperaCoast is crowd-funding their Brighton Fringe concerts, visit their crowd-funding page to Donate. You can see their video after the break:
