Last Train to Tomorrow is Carl Davis’s dramatic narrative for children’s choir, actors and orchestra is based on the story of the Kindertransport.  This 40 minutes work was commissioned by the Hallé for the Hallé’s virtuoso Children’s Choir, and premiered in June 2012.  Set to a text by celebrated children’s author Haiwyn Oram, the piece explores the poignant story of the Kindertransport which took place between 1938 and 1939,  and which saw over 10,000 Jewish children brought to England by train from Berlin, Vienna, and Prague. Davis’ sensitive, moving piece brought the Manchester audience to its feet.
