Tigger tries to prevent Emma from studying Harrie Janssen’s “A Poem Against War.”

On 9th December, Emma will sing “A Poem Against War” by Harrie Janssen (1960-) during the HRFSTWND concert series with Het Fanfare Collectif. “A Poem Against War” is a beautiful piece for mezzo and windband. The poem, by New York poet Karen Karpowich, is the reflections of a person seeing a war memorial and realising the futility of war and the tragedy that the soldiers are forgotten.

The concert is in the Schaffelaartheater in Barneveld, the Netherlands, beginning at 20:00. Tickets are available here, and there is more information (in Dutch) here.
