4:00 pm

Elsinore Theatre
170 High St SE, Salem

Vaughan Williams’ last major choral/orchestral composition, Hodie was premiered at the 1954 Three Choirs Festival in Worcester under the baton of the composer.

It could be said to be a compilation of all his musical styles, including plainchant, beautiful melodies, modal harmonies, and dramatic blockbuster choruses in the nature of “Ben Hur”.

In addition to a large orchestra and choir, the work will feature the Heart of the Valley Children’s Choir, soprano soloist Bethany Staats, tenor Daniel Ross, and baritone Harry Baechtel, who will also be the soloist for Vaughan Willam’s Fantasia on Christmas Carols.
