THE ARMED MAN: A Mass for Peace 

by Karl Jenkins


Saturday 25 April 2015

Venue: Playhouse, Darwin Entertainment Centre

Conductor: Michael Loughlin

'The Armed Man' is a powerful and evocative work that charts the growing menace of a descent into war, interspersed with moments of reflection; it shows the horrors that war brings; and ends with the hope for peace in a new millennium, when “sorrow, pain and death can be overcome”.

 New singers  (and ex-singers) welcome if you are interested in joining the Darwin Chorale in 2015.

The Darwin Chorale is a community choir based in Darwin.

We perform regularly at community events in Darwin and beyond, and present major concerts several times each year.

We always welcome new members. Come to a rehearsal and try us out. You will enjoy it.

Louise Michie (Alto):
I especially enjoy the Chorale's involvement in the community.Thanks to the Darwin Chorale I have had fabulous opportunities. I have sung in Latin in a big cathedral!! Even more amazing is that I have sung on stage with soloists from the Australian Opera. Why do I sing with the Darwin Chorale? Why not! Life is for living, and this is living.

Reg Prasad (Tenor):
My love of singing goes way back to my Fijian Methodist roots and chorale experience in my New Zealand university days. With pressures of professional and family life all singing went into abeyance for decades. Then in the 1990s I took up Barbershop singing in Melbourne. Arriving in Darwin I heard about and joined the Darwin Chorale in 1997. I've never looked back. The Chorale has given me the opportunity to resurrect my love of choral harmony.
