Cantata Memoria: For the Children of Aberfan

Cantata Memoria: For the Children of Aberfan

Following their participation in the US premiere, the Nelson Civic Choir present the latest work by Sir Karl Jenkins, one of the most performed contemporary choral composers: Cantata Memoria: For the children of Aberfan. The Nelson concert, under the direction of Chris Lukies, will be the first New Zealand performance of this work.

Cantata Memoria commemorates the tragedy in Aberfan, South Wales 50 years ago, where a mining tip engulfed a primary school, killing 116 children and 28 adults. Through the power and beauty of Karl Jenkins' music, the work depicts the story of that day, together with the process of grieving and finding meaning in life after tragedy.

With singers and instrumentalists from the Top of the South, Christchurch and Wellington, a youth choir, full orchestra, and a specially commissioned video to complement the music, this promises to be an emotional and memorable event. The soloists are Amanda Crehan (Soprano) and Joel Amosa (Baritone).
