June 6 – William Walton Facade – Scotia Festival of Music

Nick Halley will appear in the Scotia Festival of Music’s Highlight Concert #8 as one of two “reciters” narrating William Walton’s Façade, performed with an ensemble of instrumentalists. With Façade, Walton (at the age of only 20 years old!) captured the spirit of the 1920s, setting to music the riotously funny surrealist poems by the ultra-eccentric Edith Sitwell.
