Duruflé's Magnificent Requiem at Lincoln Center

Hi all, 

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.

**We will be meeting at the bar of Iguana Cafe again for pre-concert drinks and appetizers at 6:30pm. Iguana Cafe is a fantastic restaurant with the perfect atmosphere for our group. We went there for our last Meetup event and it was a huge hit! Iguana is located at 240 W. 54th Street, between 8th & Broadway.

Make sure to reserve your spot early for this concert before seats sell out! Tickets are only $5 each, a fabulous discount. You can purchase your ticket(s) directly on this event page.

Please note: Once you have booked your tickets, they will be available for collection under your full name (the name listed under your PayPal "Buyer Information" in payment, not your Meetup name) at the box office at Avery Fisher Hall from 4pm on the day of the performance. Each individual is responsible for picking up his or her own tickets. Everyone from our Meetup group will be seated together.

Looking forward to seeing everyone for this fabulous concert!

Best,

Christine

    mesmerizing…
    enchanting...
    The Soprano was clear as a bell… and I was a little awestruck by the MezzoSoprano…
    The closing performance was INCREDIBLE!!! Those young adults are Professional Level musicians. The Percussionists are AMAZING! Moving thru all the instruments with confidence… plus TIGHT! Their Conductor is an EXEMPLARY teacher & mentor…
    impressive...

    Great final! It was a pity that half of the audience left too early as the performance of the last orchestra was actually the best one of the whole concert!
