Director’s Notes, Robert Russell: Our season begins as guests of the Portland Symphony Orchestra and Karl Jenkins’ monumental and poignant The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace. The work explores three themes: War is great! War is terrible! Isn’t peace a better alternative? Some of you will remember our performance several years ago in collaboration with Portland Ballet. We invite you to hear this stirring work with the full resources of the PSO.
