Maxwell Davies: The Turn of the Tide

November 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Climate change is an issue of concern for us all, but most of all to the youth who will inherit the planet. British composer Peter Maxwell Davies was an outspoken voice for protecting the environment for these future generations. His 1992 work The Turn of the Tide engages young choristers, alongside the musicians of the Victoria Symphony, in a creation story that sets out the diverging paths before us. It is shared alongside similar meditations on ecosystems and impacts.

Supported in part by The Gail O’Riordan Climate and the Arts Legacy Fund at the Victoria Foundation.
