Gala Concert "A House Divided": The War Between the States by VOCI
On October 23, 2011 at 3:00 pm at the Cultural Center for the Arts in Canton, Voices of Canton will present Richard Bales' rarely performed Civil War cantatas, "The Confederacy" and "The Union," based on period music ranging from popular songs and ballads to symphonic works. A performance of both collections with a full chamber orchestra, chorus and soloists will be presented in the Great Court of the Canton Cultural Center for the Arts. Guests will have the option to tour the Civil War photo exhibition at the Canton Museum of Art. Tickets are $25, $20 and $15 and can be ordered by calling the VOCI office at 330-455-1000 or at www.voicesofcanton.org. On Saturday and Sunday, October 22nd and 23rd, members of the Confederate Reenactment Group of Ohio will encamp on the grounds of the Cultural Center. Join us for the opportunity to mingle with the participants (Civil War soldiers), observe their living quarters and experience a soldier's daily life during the war. Demonstrations will filter throughout the day and food vendors will be on site. Two groups of cloggers will also perform on October 22nd.
