The Auburn Symphony Orchestra presents Tales of Love and Death, a chamber concert featuring piano, vocal and string music, at 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 21 at St. Mathew Episcopal Church, 123 L St. NE, Auburn.

The concert is full of beautiful and descriptive music, featuring “On Wenlock Edge” for tenor, piano and string quartet by Vaughan Williams, Schumann’s “Dichterliebe” and Beethoven’s String Quartet: Op 18, no. 2 in G Major. Vaughn Williams and Schumann tell the stories of young men and their life experiences, and the string quartet is considered one of Beethoven’s most classical – the opening is described as a quartet of bows and curtseys.

Tickets – $20 general, $10 students – are available in advance online at auburnsymphony.org or by phone at 253-887-7777, and will also be available at the door. The box office opens 60 minutes prior to the concert and the house opens 30 minutes prior.

The concert is sponsored in part by the City of Auburn.
