the Voices of the Mountains and the Civic Chorale.
Featured works will include Randall Thompson’s oratorio “The Testament of Freedom”

at King University.
Other selections will include pieces by Dvorak, Bach, and Copland. The selection,
“Lincoln Portrait” by Copland will be narrated by Steward Harris, Constitutional Law

sing the “Dona nobis pacem” from the “Mass in B Minor” by J.S. Bach.
Tickets for the “Stories of Freedom” concert are $35. All students are admitted free
of charge with student ID. Following the concert will be a reception to celebrate
another successful season for the Symphony of the Mountains. The cost to attend the
