“World Without End: Sacred Poetry and Music Through the Ages”

 Voices of the Mountains Director W. Patrick Flannagan is proud to announce our 2015-2016 Season solo concert, “World Without End: Sacred Poetry and Music Through the Ages” on Saturday, October 31, 2015 at 7:30pm at King University Chapel in Bristol, TN.

The annual Voices of the Mountains Concert showcases the outstanding talent within the choral component of Symphony of the Mountains.

This year’s concert date is no mistake. Slated for All Hallows Eve, the holiday which later became known as Halloween, it marks what is traditionally a celebration on the night before All Saints Day. It’s a time of feasts and festival to honor the saints, martyrs and departed loved ones.

In keeping with the sacred nature of the holiday, Voices of the Mountains will perform traditional, hallowed poetry set to various musical styles from the Renaissance to jazz.

Repertoire includes:

  • Wagner: “Alleluia”
  • Rachmaninoff: “Ave Maria”
  • Schubert: “Sanctus”
  • Mozart: “Psalm 46”
  • Nehlybel: “The Devil and The Farmer’s Wife”

Performed in the beautiful King University chapel, the crystalline voices will soar to the apex of the church and fill the hall with music and joy.

Concert tickets are just $15 and may be purchased by calling our Box Office at (423) 392-8423 or visiting our website at SymphonyoftheMountains.org. Concert tickets will be available at the door the evening of the concert.
