When There is Peace

  • West Vancouver United Church 2062 Esquimalt Avenue West Vancouver, BC, V7V 1S4 Canada (map)

With a libretto by Peter Rothstein and Erick Lichte, Chor Leoni recognizes the 100th anniversary of the World War One armistice with the world premiere of a concert-length oratorio by Canadian-American composer Zachary Wadsworth. When There Is Peace is a gripping work that traces the ache of the war to end all wars to that moment of incandescent joy when guns fell silent, hope bloomed again, and birdsong was heard once more. Canadian tenor Lawrence Wiliford, soprano Arwen Myers, and the Borealis String Quartet will join Chor Leoni for this world premiere.
