Vaughan Williams’ A Sea Symphony

10 June @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

£6 – £25

Two choirs combine for a concert of music by Vaughan Williams: York Musical Society and Philharmonischer Chor Münster from York’s twin city in Germany.

The major work in this concert is A Sea Symphony, panoramic in scale and depicting different aspects of the sea. It uses text from poems by Walt Whitman including The Waves and On the Beach at Night Alone.

Toward the Unknown Region, another Whitman setting, takes us on a journey from darkness to light. It was described by the composer as ‘a song for chorus and orchestra’.

Completing the programme is the beautiful orchestral work, Serenade in A minor.

This concert, a feast of music by Vaughan Williams, falls at the end of the anniversary year marking 150 years since the composer’s birth. It also celebrates 30 years since the first of many shared concerts by these two choirs, in the cathedral in Münster in October 1983.

Tickets are available in advance and can be purchased through York Theatre Royal box office or on the door on the night. For tickets, telephone 01904 623568 or visit www.yorktheatreroyal.co.uk
