The Peacemakers
Glasshouse, Port Macquarie
Sunday, 9th June 2019

Hastings Choristers hosted another major Karl Jenkins event on this Queen's Birthday weekend, for which choral singers from far and wide were invited to enjoy two days of musical camaraderie in the surroundings of beautiful Port Macquarie.

Paul Holley and other expert tutors 'work-shopped' The Peacemakers, a powerful choral work by Sir Karl Jenkins, which culminated in a full concert performance with a 120-strong choir accompanied by a select (and multi-tasking!) chamber orchestra on Sunday 9th June 2019.

Most of those enthusiastic music-makers who joyfully performed The Armed Man in 2013 - also under Paul Holley's inspirational direction - returned to take part in this companion work. We were especially pleased to welcome many newcomers to this type of choral event and look forward to meeting them again.
