Stephen Mannings, Director of Choral Outreach at Liverpool Cathedral is looking for accomplished singers to join a 200-strong massed choir to perform in a production of Karl Jenkins’ ‘The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace’ in November.
This poignant yet powerful piece pays homage to those who lost their lives in the Kosovan War. It describes the build-up to war, the war itself and its consequences, combined with a strong plea for peace.
‘As we approach Armistice Day 2019, we will be staging one of the greatest and most infamous, musical works of the 21st Century – ‘The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace’. We’re looking for people to be part of this production. If you join our massed choir, you will be performing this powerful piece in our breathtaking building. It’s a once in a lifetime experience.’
Singers need to be over 18 and familiar with the work. They will join cadets from the Army Reserves, the RAF Air Training Corps plus soloist Danielle Thomas. A 14 piece instrumental ensemble will accompany the performance.
If you’re interested in joining our massed choir please contact Christopher Newton at [email protected]
The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace will take place at Liverpool Cathedral on 9 Nov at 19:30.
