Grant Us Peace
Word over all, beautiful as the sky, beautiful that war and all its deeds of carnage must in time be utterly lost, that the hands of the sisters Death and Night incessantly softly wash again and ever again, this soiled world…Walt Whitman
We are looking forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming concerts as we offer a poignant program dedicated to peace.
Conductor Marlene Pauley and the Wayzata Symphony Orchestra along with Two Rivers Chorale and Edina Chorale perform Ralph Vaughn Williams’ magnificent World War I inspired Dona Nobis Pacem, featuring soprano Tracey Engleman and baritone Gerard Sundberg.
The orchestra will also perform the Midwest premiere of Weinberg’s Fantasia for Cello and Orchestra, a piece written in response to World War II, featuring MN Orchestra principal cellist Anthony Ross. Performances are FREE and open to the public! No ticket required, donations gratefully accepted.

A Place Called Home
A reprise of our program from the historic “Blizzard of April 2018,” this concert is a richly layered celebration of people working, singing together and sharing the gift of music in our diverse communities and lives. Belonging, finding a “home” and a safe place will be described in multiple ways through music and the spoken word.
Free Admission – Donations Gladly Accepted
