Sir Karl Jenkins will be taking to the stage on Thursday 6 September along with the Royal Choral Society and the Philharmonia Orchestra, in 100 Days to Peace, a gala evening of music and reflection presented by the Royal Armouries to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War hostilities.

It has also just been announced that he will be joined on stage at the event by renowned soprano singer, musician and broadcaster, Lesley Garrett CBE, who will host and sing at this special evening, climaxing in a performance of Sir Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace, taking place at Central Hall, Westminster on 6th September.

Fans will have just one opportunity this year in England to see Sir Karl conduct one of his best-loved works and all proceeds from the event will go to three charities - Help for Heroes; Combat Stress; and Heads Together - The Royal Foundation’s Campaign and Mental Health Initiative - whose work supports military veterans suffering from mental health conditions.
