During the Battle of Britain the summer Promenade concerts were presented during the afternoon so audiences could safely return home in daylight. Vaughan Williams composed his Symphony No. 5 for one of those summer afternoon concerts, giving listeners a gift of peace for a time. We'll enjoy it during our music this evening beginning at 8 pm on 91.1 and 107.5 FM and our music stream.
