Sir Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace dramatically portrays the growing menace of war, interspersed with moments of reflection, and ends with hope for peace. Accompanied by a compelling film produced specifically for The Armed Man, Albany Pro Musica’s Masterworks Chorus, the Capital District Youth Chorale, mezzo soprano Lucille Beer, a muezzin and Orchestra Pro Musica will join forces for this stirring performance. This concert, conducted by Albany Pro Musica Artistic Director Dr. José Daniel Flores-Caraballo, is presented as a tribute to those who have sacrificed to achieve enduring peace, and as a call for reconciliation at a time of deep divisions in countries around the world.
