The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle: Voices Across the Centuries 

When: Sun., Jan. 17, 3 p.m. 2016
Price: $25
This tripartite bill offers choral music from distinct times and places. Josef Haydn’s “Lord Nelson Mass,” also known as “Mass For Troubled Times,” was written to soothe a populace roiled by war. Haydn even obliged the cash-starved orchestra by writing the piece with no woodwinds. Far less earthbound, the other two works on the bill—by English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams and African-American composer William Grant Still—share a 20th-century provenance and their evocation of mythical places. Guest conductor Joseph Flummerfelt leads the Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle, while the Concert Singers of Cary provide the voices. —David Klein
