Evelyn Glennie and the World Doctors Orchestra
Dame Evelyn Glennie joins the World Doctors Orchestra in celebrating 70 years of the NHS.
In their first visit to the UK, the WDO join forces with a massed NHS choir in what will be a historic showcase event. Featuring Joseph Schwantner’s thrilling percussion concerto and Karl Jenkins’ eternally popular mass for peace ‘The Armed Man’, we present a celebration of global collaboration and living composers in aid of Pathway UK, a charity supporting health services for the homeless and marginalised in our society.
