The Crouch End Festival Chorus, one of the UK's leading symphonic choirs, perform Malala, a James McCarthy commission acclaiming the extraordinary story of Malala Yousafzai.
Yousafzai, shot by the Taliban for her stance on girls’ education, continues her campaign undaunted. As a child of our own time, she is celebrated in McCarthy’s Malala, a Crouch End Festival Chorus commission that complements beautifully Tippett's moving masterpiece.
