Blue Pearl: A One World Oratorio – World Premiere

Blue Pearl, written by Steve Banks, is a new sacred choral work for the 21st century. It expresses and celebrates the unity of the earth, and of humanity: ‘Blue Pearl’ is what the earth looks like from space. A fragile, living planet in the unimaginable vastness of space.

We live at a time when humanity needs to act ‘in concert’ – together – as it has never done before.

We need music which brings us together as a human family, giving voice to, and celebrating our common humanity. ‘Blue Pearl’ is such a piece of music.

Blue Pearl expresses an understanding of spirituality which transcends individual faiths and traditions- a ‘human’ spirituality, which embraces the best of the ancient spiritual traditions and modern science and psychology.

The world premiere will be on 14th May 2022, performed by the London Mozart Players and Excelsis Chamber Choir conducted by Rob Lewis, at St Giles’ Cripplegate, London, and streamed live online (so you can be there, wherever you are in the world). Ticket information for live performance or streaming can be found on Steve Banks’ site here
