Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts

 

 

 

Sample Requiem for the Living HERE.

 

The Annapolis Chorale’s final performance of the season is a program called “Peace & Joy!” featuring  J. Ernest Green conducting the Chorale and Annapolis Chamber Orchestra.

As we mark the 100th Anniversary of America’s involvement in World War I, music is a way for us to remember that in the end we strive for peace!  Because the response to the Chorale’s earlier programs featuring the music of modern composers, this special performance includes Dan Forrest’s Requiem for the Living, a piece of amazing beauty and power.  The Chorale, pianist Joseph Satava and soloists will perform Ludwig van Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy in C minor, opus 80.  Tenor Joseph Regan will be featured in Gerald Finzi’s Farewell to Arms.

Says Mr. Green, “I selected these pieces because they each tell a different musical story about conflict, war and the hope of peace. While not narrative, or descriptive in terms of trying to paint the picture of the sacrifice of World War I they convey some of the human feelings that surround this moment in time.”

Meet our guest soloists HERE: Sopranos Jessica Satava and Lindsay Espinosa, Mezzo Melanie Regan, Tenor Joe Regan, baritone Bennett Umhau and pianist Joseph Satava.

This gorgeous program is the final performance of the Annapolis Chorale for the 2017-2018 season.  Don’t miss it!
