TOPSHAM — Vox Nova Chamber Choir presents the second of their “Musica Pro Pace: The 2017 Peace Concerts series” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 24, and 3 p.m. Sunday, June 25, in the Orion Performing Arts Center.

The concert titled Inscription of Hope memorializes powerful sentiments of hope and love found etched into a Nazi concentration camp wall by Jewish prisoners and presents music indicative of peace and the enduring human spirit.

In contrast, music set to the visceral and even appalling prose of Dylan Thomas’ “Ceremony After A Fire Raid,” reveals brutal realities of the horrors of war. The program is ultimately designed to transport the listener on a journey of mind and spirit as expressed through the prayers and hopes of humanity.

Vox Nova Chamber Choir under the direction of Shannon Chase champions the expansive body of modern and contemporary choral repertory and brings performances of new music to Maine audiences.

Cost is $25 general admission; $20 general admission in advance; and $10 general admission for children and college students with ID.

Tickets are available online.
