|Title||In Times of War and Peace – A Choral Extravaganza|
A choral extravaganza featuring over 250 singers and full symphony orchestra will be performed by the Pioneer Valley Symphony Orchestra & Chorus and the Hampshire Choral Society. Entitled "In Times of War and Peace," two exciting works will be performed: Franz Josef Haydn's "Mass in Time of War" and William Walton's monumental Belshazzar's Feast, a work for baritone, double chorus, large orchestra and off-stage brass. This collaboration between arts groups brings a level of excitement to performances that cannot be attained by a single group alone. The melding of performers into a single group is a thrilling experience for participants and audience alike; both are strongly affected by the quality of the performance and the emotional message of the music itself.
