London Sinfonietta at Southbank Centre
London Sinfonietta, conducted by Vimbayi Kaziboni, will perform Verdala as part of Southbank Centre’s Inside Out season on 28 October. Co-curated by George Lewis and Elaine Mitchener, the concert will celebrate the music of black composers. The ensemble commissioned and premiered the work for its 2018 appearance at BBC Proms commemorating the centenary of the end of World War I. The Verdala was one of the ships that brought the British West Indian Regiment from the Caribbean to Europe to participate. It will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3. Here’s a link to more information.
