Vashon Island Chorale will perform its spring concert, “Victory and Beauty,” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 29, with a pre-concert lecture at 6:45 p.m., and at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 30, with a lecture at 2:45 p.m., at the Kay White Hall.
The two-part concert will feature Franz Joseph Hayden’s famous composition, “Lord Nelson Mass,” which is often linked to the victory of Lord Nelson against Napoleon; and Abraham Kaplan’s light-hearted “Song of Songs,” a selection of verse from the eponymous Bible love story. “Song of Songs” held its world premiere at a concert sung by the chorale on Vashon in 2013.
Gary D. Cannon directs the chorale and soloists — Jennifer Krikawa (soprano), Kathryn Weld (mezzo), Gabriel Gargari (tenor) and Andrew Krikawa (baritone).
Tickets are sold at vashoncenterforthearsts.org, VCA and Heron’s Nest Gallery.
