Following the sell-out Broadway Gala in 2019, join the Liberation Festival and celebrate the 75th anniversary of Jersey’s Liberation following the Occupation in WW2. Remember and then party with a wonderfully varied programme featuring international stars and home-grown Jersey talent.
The night will take you from
reflection through popular songs of WW2 sung by VCP and JCP schools, the
plight of immigrants, to enjoying foot-tapping classics from the
musicals by Cole Porter, George Gershwin and other favourites. We
welcome back Jersey favourite violinist Harriet Mackenzie to perform
alongside Beaulieu Convent School in the Jersey premiere of 'The Girl
from Aleppo' by Cecilia McDowall – an exploration of the extraordinary
story of a teenager with cerebral palsy forced by war to
flee her home in Syria and embark on an arduous journey to Europe.
Conducted by Eamonn Dougan.
When: Saturday 9th May
Where: Jersey Opera House
