Composer and conductor Z. Randall Stroope will present his new work Carmina Pax, which was premiered in March 2018 by the Arlington Master Chorale. “Peace” can narrowly be seen as an an absence of war between individuals, groups or nations. But more broadly, it can mean absence of famine, class conflict, disease, terror, desire to expunge a religion, depression, among others. This work is meant to create a “dialogue” between the performers and the audience to not lose hope, but to begin seeking more humane solutions and understandings to conflict. Music is a great unifier – we must first find peace in our own minds and hearts, in order to find common ground and peace with those around us.
