Our February concerts are usually lighter fare, but that doesn’t mean we can’t also dust off our finest tail coats and ball gowns and GO TO THE OPERA! Not only will we present some of the greatest choral movements from the operatic world, but we will also hear from several of our soloists in featured arias. We will be joined by guest artists from the Opera Program at the Hartt School of Music! Join us for some powerful performances!

Gabriel Fauré – “Requiem” and the premiere of “Le Lac” by Stephan Barnicle
We close our season with a mainstay of the choral repertoire, Gabriel Fauré’s healing “Requiem.” This sumptuous work, now one of the most popular of our time, was a departure from the traditional Requiem Masses, with their depictions of a fiery Judgment Day. Instead, Fauré wanted his Mass to be a time for reflection, healing, and peace. We pair this work with the premiere of a new piece by MSW member Stephan Barnicle, a setting of “Le Lac,” by Alphonse de Lamartine.
