Karen Kirkland Music | Composer - Performer - Teacher - Consultant 

The St Anne Trust exists to raise funds for Belfast Cathedral's musical outreach project in primary schools in a divided and deprived area of Belfast. Part of the fundraising for this project is the Primary School "Choir of the Year" competition in May each year. After the schools have competed by singing their "own choice" works they all sing together under the direction of the Cathedral's musicians (whilst the adjudicator is considering his report) David Stevens, Organist of Belfast Cathedral has recommended that this year the schools will sing Karen's "A Peace Blessing". It comes after Karen's piece was performed last year at Symphony Hall, Birmingham as part of the "Sing" Music Mark West Midlands event, involving 14 music services and leaders of 13 music education hubs across the West Midlands. Karen's work was originally composed for the "One Day One Choir" global project - an inspiring global peace initiative which uses singing together to unite people around the world on World Peace Day September 21st. "A Peace Blessing" is available as sheet music for choirs (SATB, Male voice, SSA, SAB) schools, solo - other arrangements are available on request.
