Home – Isle of Man Choral Society supports Island of Culture 2014

Choral Concert 2014

Gloria by Francis Poulenc and The Armed Man – “A Mass for Peace”  by Karl Jenkins CBE are to be performed by this Society 23rd March 2014 at the Royal Hall, Villa Marina, Douglas, commencing at 7.30pm as part of its programme during the Island of Culture 2014 celebrations.

Most of you will probably know the second and longer work written by Karl Jenkins CBE, as movements from it are performed as individual pieces by modern groups such as Escala and played regularly on Classic FM.

As in previous concerts the Society, under the baton of its Director of Music Julian Power, will be singing with the Isle of Man Symphony Orchestra – Leader Tom Field, which too has a full programme of concerts in 2014 and Isle of Man Choral Society is grateful to the orchestra for its continuing support.

Some of you will know the Benedictus of The Armed Man which has a beautiful melody  and will be played by a cello soloist – David Hornberger whose details are to be seen in the recent posts section of this site.
