THE Lowestoft Choral Society will be performing a first in East Anglian next month.

For part of their Spring Concert on Saturday, May 16, will featured Karl Jenkins' The Armed Man _ Mass for Peace.

The choir will start the evening with Dvorak's Te Deum followed by the highlight of the evening.

Jenkins has written the work to be listened to in conjunction with a film depicting the horrors of war and a celebration of peace. Very rarely is The Armed Man performed with the film as a backdrop but the choral society will be doing this which is thought to be a first time in this area or in East Anglia.

Conductor is Michael Taylor, musical director of the society, and the orchestra will be the Lowestoft Concert Orchestra.

Soloists are Ann De Renais, soprano, who will be making her first appearance with the society, and Lawrence Wallington.

The concert is being held at St Margaret's Church, at 7.30pm, and tickets are £8, with free admission for accompanied children under 17.

Tickets can be obtained from society members; Morlings, 178-180 London Road South; F W Knights & Co, 180 London Road North; or on the door.
