PEACE - A cantata for John Monash

Let there be peace. The clarion call of Melbourne’s most famous son, John Monash, opens a new massed choral work. 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.

Following key themes of love of family and loyalty to country, PEACE  travels through the early years of life in Jerilderie to his student days at Melbourne University, as an engineer and business man in the heart of Melbourne, and as a soldier and leader of WWI Australian troops in Gallipoli and France.

There are poignant moments in the work where the tragedy of war and its effect on Australia are starkly juxtaposed with the innocence of children’s songs and larrikin student ditties of his days at university.

This much-anticipated premiere has seen an enthusiastic response with over 200 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.
