Choral Arts Society of Davidson | Davidson Singers | Davidson Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra | Dr Christopher Gilliam, music director
  • Join the Choral Arts Society of Davidson for the kickoff of our 10th anniversary season! Funda nos in pace, or, ‘establish us in peace,’ features Haydn’s ‘greatest single composition,’ known as the Lord Nelson Mass or Mass for troubled times. Also featured is British composer Cecilia McDowall’s mystical peace anthem, Ave Maris Stella, a work originally intended for Armistice Day performed in the shadow of the events of 9/11. Accompanied by Davidson’s own Pro Arte chamber orchestra and professional soloists, the singers hope that this concert will be a soothing moment during troubled times for listeners, and as the concert intends—help to establish them in peace.
