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

In Flanders Fields Poem

In Flanders Fields Poem

“In Flanders Fields”, one of the pieces to be performed, was inspired by a poem turned into a choir piece of the same name written by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. As McCrae was presiding over the funeral of a friend and fellow soldier who died during WWI, he was moved to write “In Flanders Fields”. With its visions of the iconic red poppies, it is the most popular and most quoted poem of WWI.

Other repertoire includes “The Road Home” by Paulus, “Dona Nobis Pacem: Reconciliation” by Vaughn-Williams and the famous “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”

Performed in the beautiful Central Presbyterian Church sanctuary, the crystalline voices will soar to the apex of the church and fill the hall with music and remembrance.

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.
