Gretchen Kuhrmann, Artistic Director

All of us have moments of music we live to hear or sing. Maestra Kuhrmann has long wanted to present an “eclectic” Requiem, featuring movements of various Requiems that particularly speak to her. She has chosen Mozart’s Introit, Kyrie, and Recordare; Duruflé’s Introit, Kyrie, and Sanctus; Verdi’s Libera Me; Fauré’s Pie Jesu, Britten’s Agnus Dei; Vogler’s Benedictus, and Movement VI from Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem. To honor Choralis’ twenty-year legacy, previous assistant conductors, conducting fellows, keyboard artists, singers, and board members will participate in this concert.
