The Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra will be joining forces with the Grace & Spiritus Chorale of Brooklyn for the last concert of the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra’s 35th season.

The performance will be May 16 at 8 p.m. and May 18 at 3 p.m. Both performances will be at the Church of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity in Brooklyn Heights.

The program will be conducted by James Busby, music director and conductor of the Grace & Spiritus Chorale, and will feature Sir Michael Tippett’s oratorio, “A Child of Our Time.”

Tippett’s oratorio was based on the events of 1938, when a Jewish teenager murdered a German diplomat. That murder was used by the Nazis to foment anti-Jewish violence that ultimately resulted in the tragic events of Kristallnacht.

Tippett’s work, while musically very 20th century, is interspersed throughout with chorales that draw heavily from traditional American Negro spirituals.

The performance will feature Caroline Earp, soprano; Sarah Craft, mezzo-soprano; Nicholas Filzen, tenor; and Daniel Hoy, baritone.

Admission to the concert is free with a suggested contribution of $15. The Church of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity is at the corner of Clinton and Montague streets in Brooklyn Heights.
