Metropolitan Chorale of Brookline - Performs Ralph Vaughn William's Sea Symphony
Lisa Graham, Music Director A choral masterwork of epic, almost cinematic orchestral grandeur, this compelling piece was the first in history to weave choral singing into and throughout all four movements of a symphony. The setting of Walt Whitman’s stirring poetry is gloriously evocative of the beauty, power and mystery of the sea, expressed in the distinctly English voice of Vaughan Williams. The work is not often heard today yet its rousing homage to “all that went down doing their duty” resonates now as clearly as it did a century ago. Don't miss this is a rare opportunity to hear the confluence of transcendent text and unsurpassed melodic beauty performed in Harvard’s majestic Sanders Theater, known for its superior acoustics and intimacy.
