Pegasus Opera, in partnership with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra present Windrush, The Journey.

For more than 30 years, Pegasus Opera Company has fearlessly paved the way for diverse talent in opera. Today, we’re paying tribute to Windrush, showcasing a rich tapestry of music and storytelling, and celebrating Black classical composers: past, present and future. Through the outstanding music of Chevalier de Saint-Georges, Richard Thompson and Des Oliver – three composers who represent different eras of Black history – we’ll honour the legacy of the Windrush generation with an exciting fusion of classical music, steel pan, jazz and blues.  

A fascinating immersive exhibition showcasing the work of Black British composers through music, photographs and anecdotes will accompany this concert in The Tung Auditorium foyer.


This event will last approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes (including an interval).
