The Peacemakers by Karl Jenkins
First United Methodist Church, Corvallis

Beautiful, haunting, ethereal, searching, uplifting, earthy and majestic, are words that aptly describe this contemporary work by Welsh composer Karl Jenkins. Known for his blending of symphonic and World Music elements with a large chorus, Jenkins features texts from Gandhi, Martin Luther King, the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Anne Frank and Mother Teresa, as well as words from the Bible, the Qur’an, and special text from author and humanitarian, Terry Waite.  The Peacemakers is a massive work extolling peace as a healing and reconciling force. Maestro Zielke will present a pre-concert talk on this work.

Candlelight & Carols: Jubilate Deo by Dan Forrest
First United Methodist Church, Corvallis

Described as a stunning global celebration of joy, as all the earth sings as one. Contemporary composer Dan Forrest’s Jubilate Deo brings to life new renderings of the traditional Psalm 100 text, “O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands,” by setting it in seven different languages and drawing from a wide spectrum of musical influences. Each movement combines some characteristics of its language-group’s musical culture with the composer’s own musical language. In addition, a selection of seasonal carols will be performed.
