Ticket Giveaway – A Child of Our Time

This weekend’s concert is a great choral work written at the outbreak of World War II by English composer Michael Tippett. Tippett was a pacifist and a conscientious objector, and he served a prison sentence because of it. A Child of Our Time is an oratorio that sums up Tippett’s beliefs on oppression,  violence, justice, and consequences. It is also noteworthy because it uses African-American spirituals as the basis for many of its movement.
