The Great Beyond

Sure to be memorable, this program features transcendent and profound choral and instrumental music that speaks to eternity, transfiguration, and consolation, culminating in Gabriel Fauré’s ravishing Requiem for chamber orchestra, organ, harp, and solo violin. The exceptional chamber choir Antioch will astonish you with its “clarity of tone and intonation so pure that you could hear the buzz of overtones” (New York Times).

Program:

Fauré: Requiem
Bach, Lizt, Messiaen, Eric Whitacre: Short instrumental and choral selections on the theme of eternity
