Dissenters are delighted to host the fourth stopover point as part of this year’s walk in solidarity with refugees, asylum seekers and detainees. Walkers will be on their way from St Albans into Westminster and Jonathan Bartley of the Green Party is hosting the evening.
Chorus of Dissent and the Elastic Band will be performing opera choruses of exile and hope, including Nessun Dorma and Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves.
What people said about the event
“The passion of the music on Tuesday was so intense. I had Ali Smith in tears behind me and could see asylum seekers who had never heard opera before in tears as well. You are a wonderful conductor and it was a privilege to see you conduct and be any small part of what you do. Big thank you for welcoming us to St Matthias, and the music was a perfect choice and performed with brilliance.” Anna Pincus, founder of Refugee Tales
“I’ve just come home from Refugee Tales. I wanted to say, before the opportunity slips away, that I was completely bowled over by your performance tonight. What a choir. What a soloist. What an orchestra. (What a conductor). Thank you for an absolutely terrific evening, I am now officially a Chorus of Dissent devotee.” EC
