This event has been cancelled. Instead we will be presenting an exciting and diverse array of brand new commissions, all available on our website for free from September.  Read more details here.

Fresh from the Barbican, Aerial is delighted to present an evening retelling Richard King’s acclaimed book, The Lark Ascending, featuring Vashti BunyanRichard KingDeep Throat Choir and Westmorland Orchestra.

The wonderful Vashti Bunyan will perform a set of songs from across her career, Deep Throat Choir sing a selection of material from the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp Songbook, and Westmorland Orchestra perform an arrangement of Vaughan Williams’ piece that gave the book its name. The evening will be punctuated by readings by Richard King from his book which is a pilgrimage into rural Britain in search of its musical identity.
