IT TAKES A CITY

IT TAKES A CITY: 24/05/2022 - 24/05/2022

In one of our most spectacular concerts, 2000 singers from AC Academy’s choirs will unite on the world-famous stage at the Royal Albert Hall to honour the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the Commonwealth and the communities within it.

At the heart of the evening is the world-premiere of composer Toby Young’s incredible ‘It Takes a City’, commissioned by Armonico Consort and influenced by people from across the Commonwealth. This powerful new work is inspired by the saying ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ and is a celebration of the importance of community, diversity and individuality amongst families across the world.

The festivities will continue with a special vocal fanfare written by Hollywood composer David Buckley, alongside some well-known favourites guaranteed to get your feet tapping – there may even be the chance for the audience to warm up their vocal cords and join in!
