It’s Concert time! Sunday, May 21st, 4:00 pm, Sanctuary
Mission Peak Chamber Singers, featuring FPCL's Choir along with professional orchestral players in the performance of Dan Forrest's Requiem for the Living, a prayer for rest:
Features Sanctuary Choir with Janet Holmes, Organ, and the Mission Peak Chamber Singers with Ofer dal Lal, Conductor. Singing a significant new setting of the Requiem by Dan Forrest, scored for mixed choir and orchestra with solos for soprano and tenor. Combining both liturgical and non-liturgical texts,this powerful five-movement work projects a wide range of meaningful expression, from a biting essay on the vanity and pain of mankind to a plea for mercy, and finally a celebration of eternal light. Entitled Requiem for the Living, it promises to be some of the most beautiful music you will hear this year. The program opens with Leonard Bernstein's familiar Chichester Psalms, and selected anthems from both choirs. Tickets are $15 for students, $20 pre-sale, and $25 at the door.
