Children @ the Buxton Festival – ‘Floratorio’ (July 20 @ 5pm)

by James Redwood and High Peak primary school children

Floratorio celebrates the life of Florence Nightingale in the 100th anniversary year of her death.
Nationally acclaimed composer James Redwood leads a team of sinfonia ViVA musicians in four local schools (Whaley Bridge Primary, Thornsett Primary, Hague Bar Primary and Burbage Primary schools) to create a series of new songs inspired by the life of the famous ‘Lady with the Lamp’.  120 young people will perform this major new oratorio incorporating their own compositions.
Peter Roberts and James Redwood have been commissioned to write Floratorio following great success with More Glass than Wall.  Their work will be performed here for the first time by the massed choir, vocal soloists and sinfonia ViVA in the culmination performance.

Conductor – David Lawrence
