God Of Olympus Synopsis
London 2012 is not just about sport: join us for the world premiere of Karl Jenkins' latest choral composition, Gods of Olympus, commissioned by The Really Big Chorus in honour of the London 2012 Games and part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. Almost 2,000 singers will take part, also singing Jenkins' iconic work The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace, now officially the world’s most-performed work by a living composer and a moving comment on the times in which we live.
The Really Big Chorus will be joined by the operatic mezzo-soprano Frances Bourne; The English Festival Orchestra (leader Adrian Levine) will open the concert with Eric Coates' lively London Suite; and the conductor will be TRBC's Principal Conductor, Brian Kay.
The concert has been awarded the Inspire Mark, the badge of the London 2012 Inspire programme which recognises exceptional and innovative projects inspired by the 2012 Games.
The Really Big Chorus is proud to support the National Autistic Society on its 50th anniversary, and all proceeds from programme sales, collections, sponsorship and advertising will benefit this leading UK charity for people with autism.
