    Late Night Jazz

    10:00 pmThe State Chamber

    The spiritual is a unique expression of the faith and suffering of the victims of slavery. The intense emotion of spirituals has permeated much other music and is an essential element in Michael Tippett’s oratorio A Child of our Time which is performed on Saturday 25th August. Festival trumpeter Graham South has written new material based on the five spirituals which Tippett used in his oratorio. He will be joined by regular collaborators from the thriving Manchester jazz scene in a group drawn together specifically for this first Festival jazz concert.
