We are excited to be part of two live performances of music and readings commemorating the White Rose and telling their incredible story. The concerts will be hosted and performed by the award-winning vocal collective SANSARA under the direction of Tom Herring. One is at St-Martin-in-the-Fields in London, and the other at the Wiltshire Music Centre. Find out more here: https://www.sansarachoir.com/events.
Here are the further details from SANSARA’s website:
Join us as we present a sequence of words and music telling the story of the White Rose resistance: five students and a professor who stood up to Nazism and paid with their lives. Powerful choral music by British and German composers is interspersed with readings from the letters, diaries and pamphlets of the White Rose in vivid new translations by students from the University of Oxford’s White Rose Project.
