19–22 March, 2009
The Scratch® Croatian Chorale
Encouraged by the success at the Royal Albert Hall in July 2008 of The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace by Karl Jenkins, we took this evocative work to Dubrovnik, so recently recovered from its own conflict.
Taking the solo role in The Armed Man was mezzo-soprano Catherine Hopper, who also delighted us with her performance at the Musical Feast. The orchestra was the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra (click here for the English-language version of their website) and, keeping all of us under control was conductor Brian Kay.
