Kindertransport Cantata is a newly-commissioned piece by Stephen Gowland and Euan Tait to mark the anniversary of the Kindertransport.
Just before the Second World War Britain took in nearly 10,000 children at risk from the Nazis. In Gloucester a local group raised funds to care for a small group of Jewish boys. Michael Zorek, the son of one of those boys, comes to Gloucester for the anniversary of the Kindertransport. At 6.30pm before the concert he will speak about his father’s experiences.
Performed by Gaudeamus Vocal Consort with Gaudeamus Strings & David McKee
