Chorale group will host ‘Concert for Peace’ at Center

“A Concert for Peace in Our Time” will be presented by the Center Cho­rale and Orchestra at 3 p.m. on Sun­day, February 28 in the main Concert Hall of the California Center for the Arts, Escondido (CCAE), 340 N. Es­condido Blvd., Escondido.

The concert will feature two mas­terworks by Mozart and Haydn, in­terspersed with essays, artworks of children, comments via video, and popular songs of today—all on the subject of peace.

A full symphony orchestra and pro­fessional soloists will accompany the Center Chorale as they sing works by composers Josef Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Modern choral works and popular tunes relating to peace are included with art works and peace essays produced by children in our community.

What does it mean to live together in peace? What can we do to promote peace? Come join us to contemplate our need to live together peacefully. Perhaps there will be an answer of how to begin our quest for peace.

Mozart’s “Solemn Vespers,” K. 339 and Haydn’s “Paukenmesse” will be sung by the 50-voice choral en­semble under the direction of Dr. Joe Stanford, accompanied by a profes­sional orchestra and soloists: Caroline Nelms, soprano; Katherine Lundeen, alto; Max Chodos, tenor; and Michael Blinco, baritone.
