Directed by Alastair Stout

The Rutland Area Chorus and Orchestra will be joined by soloists Allison Devery-Steinmetz and David Castonguay to perform the Requiem, Op. 48, by Gabriel Fauré. Violinist Kevin Bushee will also join the orchestra to perform The Lark Ascending, a ‘romance for violin and orchestra’, by Ralph Vaughan Williams. Both pieces portray the optimism of the human spirit, and are dominated by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest. This will be a wonderfully reflective concert for post-Easter season.

A pre-concert talk by David Castonguay will be given at 3:30pm in the Grace Church Sanctuary.  A post-concert reception will also be held in the Fellowship Hall.

* A freewill offering will be accepted in aid of the Grace Church Organ Repair Fund.
