VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Symphony No. 4
VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Symphony No. 5

The Mercury Orchestra, national winner of the 2010 American Prize in Orchestral Performance, returns to the concert stage for a live, in-person¬†performance, featuring two symphonies of Ralph Vaughan Williams written between the first two world wars. The Fourth Symphony is an anguished and conflicted unfolding of powerfully layered ideas brought to life through the full dynamic spectrum of the symphony orchestra. The Fifth Symphony draws forth plaintive meditations and sauntering explorations in Vaughan Williams’ distinctively beautiful modal-lyrical style. 2022 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Ralph Vaughan Williams.

This performance is open to all adults and children over the age of 5.
