STSC joins the Binghamton University Chorus, Harpur Chorale, and Symphony Orchestra and the SUNY-Oneonta Chamber Singers to present Ralph Vaughan Williams’ poignant and ever-relevant symphonic cantata on poetry by Walt Whitman.
Written between the two world wars, the Dona nobis pacem reflects the experiences the composer had serving in the British Royal Army Medical Corps in World War I, and his concerns that Europe might be hurtling towards a second conflagration.
