We hope you enjoyed our last Meetup concert at Carnegie Hall and we hope you will join us again for Duruflé's magnificent Requiem at Lincoln Center's celebrated Avery Fisher Hall, home of the New York Philharmonic on Sunday, March 23 at 8:00pm. Performed by the Masterworks Festival Chorus and soprano soloist, and the all-professional New York City Chamber Orchestra under the direction of esteemed Guest Conductor Bruce Chamberlain. This is a performance not to be missed!
Duruflé's Requiem is some of the most beautiful music ever written. The use of themes from Gregorian chant throughout, results in utterly spellbinding movements.
The concert will also the National Festival Chorus as part of this evening, led by esteemed Guest Conductor and composer René Clausen in a wonderful selection of choral works including Handel's O Lord, in Thee Have I Trusted, Davison's Ritmo, Whitacre's This Marriage, as well as Clausen's very own composition Sure on This Shining Night.
