Blessed are the Peacemakers
University United Methodist Church
This event has already passed by. Sorry.
Falling on the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day, this concert will pay tribute to the end of WWI. The idealistic hope of the "Great War" was that it would lead to lasting world peace; instead regions were devastated, and events led to another world war within decades. The work for lasting peace has continued since 1918.
This concert will highlight Ralph Vaughan Williams’ setting of Dona Nobis Pacem with strings and soloists featuring soprano Lydia Beasley Kneer and baritone Robin Rice. Texts and themes by Martin Luther King Jr., Desmond Tutu, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and other “peacemakers” will be depicted in the music of James Whitbourn, U2, James Taylor, and more.
