The Armed Man – A Mass for Peace

By No Comments

Allegri Singers and Friends are thrilled to be presenting a program of Karl Jenkins’ works featuring ‘The Armed Man – A Mass for Peace’. With a choir of some 90 voices, soloists and a large orchestra, this will be one of the most exciting and challenging works in the choir’s over 40 years of singing.

Joining the Allegri Singers will be the Willoughby Singers, Orange Symphony Orchestra, Orange Regional Conservatorium Symphonic Choir, and Kinross Wolaroi School Chamber Strings, Chamber Choir and Koristers, all under the direction of William Moxey.

‘The Armed Man’, subtitled ‘A Mass for Peace’ is essentially a plea for peace and an end to war. The words and music are immediately captivating, from the martial, strident opening and the shockingly visceral evocation of the reality of war, to the transcendent, exquisitely emotional movements expressing faith in the possibility of peace. This is a work you will never forget.

Inspired by the words of many different cultures and belief systems, it has a broad appeal to all of humankind.

Venue is wheelchair accessible.

Sky Stories: Western Science meets Aboriginal knowledge

By No Comments

Sky Stories is a melding of Western science and Aboriginal knowledge – a chance to look at the stars and see them from two perspectives.

On the night there will be telescopes for viewing the night sky and a free BBQ. A great family event with lots of entertainment for the kids!

Background of Sky Stories
Sky Stories is a professional learning project initiated by Charles Sturt University and coordinated and co funded by Future Moves, designed to use astronomy to engage students in Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics

An integral element of the project is acknowledging the links between students, the school curriculum, family, community and their sky stories. This enables new ways of learning, teaching and community engagement around science. The use of social media is pivotal to this process and enables pilot schools to capture, share, collaborate and reflect upon the new ways of science in their own community, between Sky Stories communities and beyond.

Special Guest Speaker:
Trevor Leaman
PhD Researcher on the Wiradjuri Cultural Astronomy Project and Director of Dark Skies Downunder.

Rod Somerville, Orange Planetarium.
Ray Pickard, Bathurst Observatory Research Facility
Tina Leaman

Venue / Address:
Charles Sturt University, Girinyalanha Park, Leeds Parade, ORANGE NSW 2800.

Parking space available in carparks 1, 2, 3 and 5. Signs and ushers will be present the evening.
