COME & SING | CONCERT FOR PEACE WITH JOHN RUTTER & THE WORLD ORCHESTRA FOR PEACE | 4th – 6th August 2022
The World Choir for Peace invites choirs and singers from around the world to join them and take part in a huge Concert for Peace, singing John Rutter’s Requiem. Conducted by the composer himself together with the World Orchestra for Peace, the concert will be held on Hiroshima Remembrance Day, 6th August 2022. 1,500 singers from across the globe will get the chance to perform in the domed hall at the Hannover Congress Centre (HCC) in Hannover, Germany. The concert will be broadcast on TV and another 5,000 people will be able to participate virtually and sing from the comfort of their living rooms. This workshop offers a unique opportunity to get to know this world-famous composer and his work.
Parallel to the Concert for Peace, a peace week will take place from 3rd-7th August with a range of workshops and master classes themed around singing, peace and health. This will give participants the chance to interact with each other outside the concert and network with international singers. Choirs can also apply for the chance to perform at the Gala Concert on 7th August.
