Song of Contagion at Wilton’s Music Hall

Acclaimed World and Jazz musicians combine with a renowned scientist to tell the story of gobal epidemics.

13 June 2017 – 17 June 2017 | Visit website

Song of Contagion examines global epidemics, and the mismatch between where diseases are suffered and where money is spent. It's an important issue brought vividly to life through the combined efforts of Elizabeth Pisani, an acclaimed epidemiologist, and composer Tony Hayes. Taking a series of cold statistics and infusing them with music from world-renowned artists playing styles ranging from samba to soca, hi-life and merengue.

The 30-strong Grand Union Orchestra explain how Cholera moved from East London to the streets of Kolkata, and Zika spread unnoticed through Africa and the Caribbean before finally grabbing pre-Olympic headlines. It's a serious subject made accessible through the power of music.

Song of Contagion is at Wilton's Music Hall from June 13-17. Tickets from £10.
