ACT: A Chorus of Women – The People’s Passion

A Chorus of women logoA Chorus of Women marked the centenary of the WWI Armistice with a sell-out, standing-ovation performance of The People’s Passion at the Chapel of the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture. Our big choral drama moved singers and audience alike, sparking much reflection about the contribution music and great wise stories could make to Peace on Earth now. The People’s Passion will be repeated between Friday 28 June 2019 7:30 PM and Sunday 30 June 2019 5:00 PM at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture, Barton, ACT.

The People’s Passion, written by Glenda Cloughley, tells the poetic history of a global web of daring women from warring and neutral nations who set a 100-year agenda for international law and human rights when they met with the goal of ending WWI and enabling permanent peace.

With Johanna McBride directing, 50 passionate Canberrans sang in the women’s and children’s choruses alongside Narrator Miriam Pickard and vocal soloists and instrumentalists who included some of the city’s finest musicians.

A Chorus of Women will be joined by the Luminescence Children’s Choir and some of Canberra’s finest singers and musicians, among them singers AJ America, Jenny Sawer, Julia Wee and Maartje Sevenster as well as violinist Rowan Harvey-Martin and cellist Gillian Pereira.
