Time: 19:30 - 21:30

One of the most influential choirs from the North Western USA visits Coventry Cathedral to perform a concert marking the centenary of the end of World War I.

Featuring

I Vow to Thee My Country Gustav Holst
O Magnum Mysterium Morten Lauridsen
You’ll Never Walk Alone Oscar Hammerstein II arr Art Harris
Nyon Nyon (UK première) Jake Runestad
Over There George M Cohan arr Michael Davis
and much more....

The American Festival Chorus (AFC) is one of the leading choruses in the north western USA, performing a varied, rich and vibrant musical repertoire ranging from masterworks, opera and pops, to gospel, American folk and Christmas music. It performs in Coventry as part of its 2018 European tour with its conductor, Dr Craig Jessop, who made his name as musical director of the world famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

The title, Over There, comes from a 1917 hit song written by George M Cohan to galvanize young Americans into enlisting in the army during World War 1 in order to “fight the Hun". The song is best remembered for a line in its chorus: "The Yanks are coming." This concert introduces a brand new Over There, specially commissioned from the American composer and trombonist Michael Davis.

The sometimes rousing, sometimes reflective programme also includes modern exploratory works as well as folk and sacred songs from both sides of the Atlantic, among them A Pioneer Suite, also by Michael Davis, an arrangement of You’ll Never Walk Alone by Art Harris, Gustav Holst’s I Vow to thee my Country, the UK première of Jake Runestad's Nyon Nyon, John Rutter’s A Choral Fanfare and another well-known song by George M. Cohan, The Big Three.

Tickets are available from Coventry Cathedral Box Office, email events@coventrycathedral.org.uk, online from Coventry Cathedral or www.wegottickets.com or on the door.
