Clearfield Choral Society Presents: We Shall Walk in Peace
Sunday, May 21 at 3:30 p.m.
Presbyterian Church of Clearfield
Adults $8 | Students $5
Music and poetry, like many of the arts, are means of personal expression for many. In the face of travesty, their voices were heard in what they wrote and the melodies they sang. Many of these voices will be featured as the Clearfield Choral Society presents their spring concert on Sunday, May 21, 2023 at 3:30pm at the Presbyterian Church of Clearfield.
Beautiful poems, such as John McCrae's "In Flander's Fields", Walt Whitman's, "Dirge for Two Veterans", and A.D. Hope's "Inscription for a War", were written in response to war and violence of their respective times. Composers, such as Ralph Vaughan Williams, spoke openly against war and conflict, and used music as a means to make his message known throughout England, and eventually, the world. In the end, the final message is the need for peace, love, and joy, as will be heard in Mack Wilberg's dynamic "Anthem of Peace", Elaine Hagenberg's setting of George Herbert Meade's, "O Love", and in the simplicity of Kevin Siegfried's setting of the Shaker hymn, "Peace".
