Peace – A Cantata For John Monash

Music by David I Kram, words by Kevin O’Flaherty

Let there be peace. The clarion call of Melbourne’s most famous son, John Monash, opens a new massed choral work. Presented by More Than Opera Composed by David Kram and written by Kevin O’Flaherty PEACE is the first musical work to tell the story of the great man’s life.

This much-anticipated premiere has seen an enthusiastic response with over 300 singers from community, schools and university choirs in Victoria participating in what promises to be a memorable concert for everyone who knows and understands the impact John Monash has had on this city.

Peace also features four soloists, baritone Michel Laloum, soprano Lisa Anne Robinson, mezzo-soprano Kristen Leich, and bass Eddie Muliaumaseali’i. Kram brings to life key characters of Monash, Bertha (his mother), Mathilde his sister and a cast of others who appear in recitatives, ensembles and arias commenting on significant events of his life. A symphony orchestra, conducted by David Kram, completes the work offering a rich diversity of sound.
