Sat 15 November – Concert for Peace with East Oxford C. Choir

On Saturday 15th November I will have the honour to accompany East Oxford Community Choir on the piano in their participation on the Concert for Peace. We will be performing excerpts from ‘The Armed Man, A Mass for Peace’, by Karl Jenkins, with conductor Mel Houldershaw.

This concert is part of the Commemorating the Peacemakers a day’s event:

“There are plenty of events around the world marking 100 years since the start of “The Great War”.  Our programme aims to offer an alternative history and focus on those who tried to prevent the war, and those who resisted it, both before it started and during it.  We will learn about the peace, labour and women’s movements leading up to the war and what they were doing in 1914.  We will try to relate their struggles to those of peace-makers today and what lessons we have learnt about peace-making for 2014.

The day will start with a key-note speaker followed by a panel discussion, with representatives of organisations that have pursued peace-making over the last century.

The afternoon will continue with workshops on music, film, education materials, and the day will end with a free concert”.

This event has been organised by Fellowship of Reconciliation, Oxford Quakers, Movement for the Abolition of War and Ruskin College.
