  1. Symphony No 1, 'A Sea Symphony' - Ralph Vaughan Williams

Join us for an exhilarating day of singing Vaughan Williams's A Sea Symphony, under the inspiring leadership of the English Arts Chorale's founder and musical director, Leslie Olive.

Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote A Sea Symphony, his first and longest symphony, between 1903 and 1909, and it was first performed in 1910 at the Leeds Festival, conducted by the composer on his 38th birthday. The text comes from Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, and the symphony is scored for soprano, baritone, chorus and a large orchestra. The chorus sings in each of the four movements.

The English Arts Chorale last sang it in a concert in Snape Maltings in 2010 in their 30th anniversary season, and in 2020 will be performing it no less than three times. If you would like to join us in one or more of these performances, speak to our Membership Secretary Christine Arnold - membership@englisharts.org
