Music and Peace

Arising from the profound impact that reports of the Israeli-Palestinian crisis in Gaza was having on Judy Stubbs and the members of Eklektika, Music and Peace is the ensemble's heartfelt effort to once again bring people together through music, in the name of peace - with all proceeds being donated to Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders.

 

This concert series was first performed locally at Thirroul in November 2023, with additional performances taking place in 2024 at Nowra School of Arts and Christ Church St Laurence - one of Sydney's oldest churches.

 

Music and Peace features arrangements from composers such as Bach, Mozart, Purcell, and Arvo Pärt, contemporary artists including the Beatles, Kate Bush, and Radiohead, and original compositions of a Latin Mass by Judy Stubbs that integrate diverse musical themes from Gregorian and Middle Eastern Sufi traditions.

Eklektika has been delighted to perform Music and Peace alongside cellist Rita Woolhouse, and percussionist Matt Bourne, with opening performances by Leaf Klevjer on Indian Tanpura.

"Thank you so much for the Beautiful and healing music. My heart was deeply moved, while time stood still."
"This concert was sublime - what a privilege it was to be there and to be embraced by superb music."
