Join Armonico Consort and Orchestra as they celebrate Armistice Day.

Commissioned by the Royal Armouries to mark the new millennium, Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man is dedicated to the victims of the Kosovo conflict, whose tragedy was unfolding as it was being composed. Blending genres and cultures, and embracing the full range of emotions that the war evokes, Jenkins conveys a powerful message for world peace. 

Armonico Consort and Orchestra will be joined by the forces of over 400 children from their AC Academy Choirs in the region to recreate the performance initially intended by the composer.
