… but only if you are in a different state …

Found online:

The third concert in Symphony Orchestra Augusta’s Symphony Series, Job, Satan & God , will focus on the religious aspect of human life.

Maestro Shizuo Kuwahara will lead the symphony in works by three English composers: Percy Grainger, Benjamin Britten and Ralph Vaughan Williams. The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at First Baptist of Augusta. The program will include Shepherd’s Hey by Grainger, Sinfonia da Requiem by Britten and Job: A Masque for Dancing by Williams.

“Throughout this season, we have presented programs which deal with different aspects of human life, and this concert reflects the religious aspect. What does it mean to have faith, and how can one see or feel what one believes? Perhaps it is difficult to understand or explain in words, but there are clues to these questions in sound. This concert is a presentation of composers’ interpretation of religion in music,” Kuwahara said in a release.

There are at least a couple of things that make this sort of interesting to me.
