Chamber Choir Concert
"Inscription of Hope"
Sat., June 24 at 7:30 pm'
Sun., June 25 at 3 pm
Vox Nova Chamber Choir presents the second installment of the series, Inscription of Hope. This concert memorializes powerful sentiments of hope and love found etched into a Nazi concentration camp wall by Jewish prisoners and presents music indicative of peace and the enduring human spirit. In contrast, music set to the visceral and even appalling prose of Dylan Thomas’ Ceremony After A Fire Raid, reveals brutal realities of the horrors of war. The program is ultimately designed to transport the listener on a journey of mind and spirit as expressed through the prayers and hopes of humanity.
