MUSIC FOR PEACE - KARL JENKINS
Symphonic kicks off city festival 500
and how! British composer Karl Jenkins wrote his impressive anti-war
Armed Man – A Mass for Peace
back in 1999, and dedicated it to the many victims of the
then-current Kosovo crisis.
As a former pop musician, Jenkins prefers a classical style that is rhythmically stimulating and emotionally moving, while still being highly accessible to new audiences. No wonder his work has been performed over a thousand times across dozens of countries.
