As America entered the war these “four freedoms” — the freedom of speech, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want, and the freedom from fear — symbolized the benefits of world-wide democracy for which America would fight, and became a monument to our modern conception of universal human rights.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-start">22 Apr 2016</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">24 Apr 2016</span> </div> </div> </div> <p>Music Celebrations International is pleased to present a special choral event dedicated to those freedoms, and to the great man behind them - the&nbsp;<a></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.chorusamerica.org/calendar/announcing-four-freedoms-choral-festival-april-22-24-2016" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://www.chorusamerica.org/calendar/announcing-four-freedoms-choral-festival-april-22-24-2016#comments For Singers Performance Special Event Thu, 09 Apr 2015 17:41:21 +0000 John Wiscombe 5278 at https://www.chorusamerica.org The Oratorio Society of Queens Sings Haydn's "Lord Nelson Mass" https://www.chorusamerica.org/calendar/oratorio-society-queens-sings-haydns-lord-nelson-mass <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 222-05 56th Avenue, Bayside, NY 11364 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-organization"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Oratorio Society of Queens </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-conductor"> <div class="field-label">Conductor / Keynote Speaker:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> David Close, conductor </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-intro"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>The Oratorio Society of Queens</strong><br /> <strong>Sings Haydn’s “Lord Nelson Mass”</strong><br /> Celebrate the promise of the season of renewal and rebirth.
