Conversation with the Florida Orchestra: A Child of Our Time 

British composer Michael Tippitt wrote the oratorio "A Child of Our Time" in response to the events of Kristallnacht, which would lead to the start of World War II. Tippitt was a pacifist and conscientious objector, and sought to write a piece of music expressing the moral outrages of violence, and the university of oppression. TFO Assistant Conductor Daniel Black will lead the conversation, which will not only explore the music of "A Child of Our Time", but will also more generally examine commemoration and resistance through the arts.
