Pursuit of Peace
April 29 @ 7:30 pm$25
John V. Sinclair, conductor • Bach Festival Choir and Orchestra
The focus of this timely and compelling program is the coveted, yet elusive goal of peace. The musical centerpiece of this poignant program, The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace by Welsh composer Sir Karl Jenkins, was written to commemorate the victims of the Kosovo Crisis in 1999 and portrays both the horrors of war and the yearning for peace. In addition to elements of the traditional mass, this work includes words of Rudyard Kipling, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Old Testament Psalms, the Islamic call to prayer, and the Sanskrit Mahabharata. In the last masterworks concert of the season, the Bach Choir and Orchestra, along with four guest soloists, are featured in this powerful and emotional performance.
Tickets from $25.
