Concerts to feature Poulenc and Mozart
Both concerts will feature Poulenc’s “Gloria” and Mozart’s “Requiem Mass in D Minor.”
Dr. Cameron LaBarr, director of choral studies and the concert’s conductor, said the works each offer something different for audiences.
“With these two contrasting works, the audience will experience freshness and modern musical ideas in the ‘Gloria’ — a gem of the 20th Century — paired with the historical and dramatic, yet classical setting of the ‘Requiem,’ which is one of the most well-known works of the entire choral-orchestral canon.”
Director of Orchestral Studies Dr. Christopher Kelts will prepare the orchestra for the concerts.
The performances will feature the following soloists:
- Sarah Tannehill Anderson, soprano
- Brandon Nase, tenor
- Dr. Carol Chapman, soprano
- Dr. Ann Marie Daehn, mezzo-soprano
- Dr. Chris Thompson, baritone
