Songs in Time of War
PhoeNX Ensemble and soloist Lawrence Wiliford join together to bring a new cross-cultural offering of Alec Roth’s profoundly moving Songs in Time of War, breathing new life into the poetry of Du Fu as set by Vikram Seth. Through music and song, we see a world in which conflict, turmoil and war are experienced personally by Du Fu himself. Stories of family, friends, neighbours, strangers, seasons, skies and stars are delivered with deep honesty, compassion, love and beauty.
This event is presented as part of Harbourfront Centre's Summer Music in the Garden.
