Brent Singers were proud to perform Philip Arkwright's Shoah - A Holocaust Cantata at Buckfast Abbey this weekend. A moving and emotive piece, written by Philip for Holocaust Memorial Day. The theme of Holocaust Memorial Day 2023 is Ordinary People. "We are all ordinary people today who can be extraordinary in our actions. We can all make decisions to challenge prejudice, stand up to hatred, to speak out against identity-based persecution, to shop responsibly.
Ordinary people are also the ones who drive Holocaust Memorial Day, who lead on community commemorations, who support and encourage everyone around them to take part in remembrance and education projects."
Brent Singers return in April for our Brahms Requiem concert at Stover School - see our website for details.
