Classic FM is teaming up with the Stay at Home Choir and Boosey & Hawkes for a special digital event celebrating the 20th anniversary of Sir Karl’s ‘The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace’.
This Sunday 6th September, at 6 PM BST, Classic FM will be hosting a virtual mass sing-a-long of music from Jenkins’ famous work, which was premiered at Classic FM Live 20 years ago.
New videos will feature movements of Sir Karl’s beloved work, recorded during lock-down by over 5,000 singers from across the world over 10 weeks of rehearsals. The event will be woven into 2018 concert footage of the World Orchestra For Peace and 2000 choristers from the AM Berlin choir, and will include special interviews with Sir Karl and exclusive performances from special guests.
Tune in online via the Classic Fm website, Facebook or Youtube to watch and be a part of this monumental project.
