The Trinity Series, “beautiful music in a beautiful space,” continues on Sunday, April 21, 2013 at 3 p.m., when the The Villa Maria Chorale, under the direction of Ireneusz Lukakszewski, performs The Peacemakers by contemporary Welsh composer Karl Jenkins. The work honors inspirational figures whose voices changed the world. Musical tributes to Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mother Teresa, among others, are sung against rhythms and harmonies that reflect their origins and culture. Proceeds of the free-will offering will benefit The Chorale and Blessed Trinity’s Under This Roof building maintenance and restoration fund.
