Masterworks 4: The Armed Man
Presented by Wedgwood Insurance
A descent into war, moments of reflection, and the hope of peace in a new millennium – this is Karl Jenkins’ incredible mass dedicated to the victims of the Kosovo crisis, The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace. In addition to extracts from the Ordinary of the Mass, the text incorporates words from other religious and historical sources, including the Islamic call to prayer, the Bible, and the Mahabharata. Join the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Marc David together with the Philharmonic Choir of the NSO for this moving and important work. Soloists are: Krista Croke, soprano; Abra Whitney, alto; Jeffrey Taylor, tenor; and Colin Mackey, bass. Masterworks 4 takes place on Friday March 24, 2023 at the Arts & Culture Centre St. John’s, and is presented by Wedgwood Insurance. Tickets are available at the ACC Box Office (729-3900), online at www.artsandculturecentre.com, and at the door.
