Join us as we seek to soothe the soul with a program of divine and inspiring music. We begin with the mystical Prayer of St. Gregory featuring strings and trumpet. The mood becomes somber as we perform the moving Nimrod from Elgar’s Enigma Variations. Somber turns to hope as we close the first half of the concert with Copland’s famous Variations on a Shaker Melody. The second half of the concert will feature the Juneau Symphony Chorus as an immense Juneau Symphony Orchestra is assembled to play Vaughan Williams’ serene Dona Nobis Pacem.
