Ralph Vaughn Williams’ A Sea Symphony – Auburn Symphony Orchestra

May 5 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

General $42; Senior $37; Student $12

“Behold, the Sea!” With these words, Ralph Vaughan Williams’ massive Sea Symphony begins. This piece, nearly an hour in length, was Vaughan Williams’ first major work and it was inspired by the poetry of Walt Whitman. Using over 107 lines of text from the poet’s Leaves of Grass, Vaughan Williams’ choral-orchestral work explores the sea itself as well as the sea of time, humankind and our infinite world. Auburn Symphony Orchestra is delighted to present this work in collaboration with Seattle Pro Musica:
Karen P. Thomas, conductor
Susan Payne O’Brien, soprano
Damien Geter, baritone

Also on the program:

Jaakko Manty Jarvi – Canticum Calamitatis MaritimaeEthyl Smyth – The Boatswain’s Mate Overture
