CLASSICAL | Finger Lakes Chamber Music Festival 

Two great writers get the musical treatment in the final concert of the 2013 Finger Lakes Chamber Music Festival. Mark Twain's "War Prayer" pulls no punches in giving the business to sermons glorifying war and destruction, and has been set to music several times, most recently by the Festival's music director Richard Auldon Clark. Premiered in 2012 by the Manhattan Contemporary Chamber Ensemble, the piece was praised by the New York Times. British poet A.E. Housman's verse "On Wenlock Edge" inspired one of Ralph Vaughan Williams' most beautiful works, a song cycle for tenor, string quartet, and piano. Soloist for both works is tenor Michael Slattery, who will also perform English folk songs and operatic arias.

The concert takes place Saturday, August 3, 7:30 p.m. at Penn Yan Academy Auditorium, 305 Court St., Penn Yan. $20, students free. fingerlakes-music.org.
