This recital from Brighton Festival Youth Choir is based around the themes of displacement and hope. The Girl From Aleppo tells the story of Nujeen Mustafa who escaped the war in Aleppo and travelled to Europe in a wheelchair, set to music by Cecilia McDowall. Other songs include Fast Car by Tracey Chapman, the grittily realistic story of a woman trying to escape the cycle of poverty, Va Pensiero the exiled Hebrew Slaves and some a cappella arrangements which takes the audience on a very different kind of journey!
