Chancel Choir Concerts

Sunday, April 29, 7 p.m., sanctuary

Requiem 2018 Spring ConcertInvite your friends and family to the Spring Concert presented by our Chancel Choir, with soloists, orchestra, and organ.  The concert centers around Dan Forrest’s powerful Requiem for the Living (2013), a five-movement prayer for rest based on Biblical texts (Ecclesiastes and Job) and traditional Requiem texts. The texts and music move from pouring out grief, and wrestling with the problem of pain and sorrow, to finding hope in Christ’s redemption, seeing God’s glory in His creation, and arriving at rest and peace in Christ, even while living in our broken world. Music by Ralph Vaughan Williams rounds out the program: Five Mystical Songs featuring a baritone soloist; an organ setting of “For All the Saints;” and a majestic setting of Psalm 100 for choir, orchestra, and audience.

Child care (6 months to 6 years) will be provided, and all are invited to a reception immediately following the concert.  A free-will offering will be collected to help offset the concert costs.
