Karl Jenkins: The Peacemakers (World Premiere)
DCINY will host the world premiere of the latest work by Karl Jenkins, the most performed living composer in the world. The Peacemakers, using text by Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Mandela, the Dalai Lama, and Albert Schweizter as well as Shelley, the Bible, Quran, Hinduism etc, is a work extolling peace. One line from Rumi (the 13th-century Persian mystic poet) sums up the ethos of the work: "All religions, all singing one song; Peace be with you."
