Shrewsbury Bookfest Remembers

On 4th November, one hundred years to the day that Wilfred Owen was killed, Shrewsbury Bookfest in collaboration with St. Chad’s Music Festival will present a very special concert at Theatre Severn in celebration of the life and work of Wilfred Owen. In the first half of the concert the Bookfest Remembers Choir, made up of schools and choirs across Shropshire, will perform works by local composer Caz Besterman with texts by Wilfred Owen and the other war poets. The Band & Bugles of the Shropshire Army Cadet Force will also be performing. In the second half of the concert the Consortium of Shropshire Choirs will perform a newly commissioned work – Move Him into the Sun – by the renowned choral composer/conductor Bob Chilcott. The orchestra will be led by John Moore with tenor Dafydd Wyn Jones. There will be readings of Owen’s letters to his mother.
