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.
