You asked, we made it happen: Every summer you ask what we’re up to, and if we really have to wait until the fall to sing again. So, here we go!
You are invited to join in our 2019 Summer Sing of Dan Forrest’s Requiem For The Living.
If you’re a regular reader of this blog (thank you!) or a VCS audience member (double thank you!), then the name probably rings a bell because we sang it back in March 2017 – to warm and thunderous applause. More important, the music stayed with those of us who sang it. And for good reason. Forrest is known for beautiful, soaring, deeply moving phrases of music and lines of notes. And unsurprisingly, this contemporary work – written in 2013 – went on to become an instant choral classic.
This event is open to the entire community. So come sing with us! Two rehearsals, one dress rehearsal, and a concert. Plus we will give you music tracks so you can learn the music at your own pace. $30 to sing with us, $13 for the score, $10 if you just want to listen.
