About the event
"The European Premiere of The Sacred Veil will take place on 25 & 26 October 2019 at St. John’s Smith Square, London. Premiered at Walt Disney Concert Hall with the Los Angeles Master Chorale in February, this 12-movement work written with poet, lyricist and long-time collaborator, Charles Anthony Silvestri, tells the true story of love, life, loss and the search for solace. The Sacred Veil received unprecedented acclaim from the media, concert-goers and the artists following its premiere, and is Eric’s most extensive choral work to date.
Eric Whitacre and Charles Anthony Silvestri will participate in a pre-concert talk before each performance. The concerts will open with two of Eric Whitacre’s most loved works, Lux Aurumque and Leonardo Dreams of his Flying Machine.
