A celebration of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity

To mark Refugee Week, for the InTRANSIT Festival 2016, players from the London Contemporary Orchestra (co-artistic directors Robert Ames and Hugh Brunt) are being joined by local choral singers to perform music by composers from the Royal College of Music. The performance takes places at 7.30pm on 20 June 2016, in South Kensington (initially secret the location has now been announced as the Exhibition Road pedestrian tunnel with its highly resonant acoustics!). The result will be somewhere between an installation and a promenade performance.

Haris Kittos (professor of composition at the Royal College of Music) and emerging composers Lillie Harris and Daniel McBride, will join Robert Ames, and the London Contemporary Orchestra create a unique performance to celebrate the triumph of the human spirit over adversity and isolation. There will also be work devised by members of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea's Sing To Live, Live To Sing arts and health programme and Catherine Lamb's String Quartet.
