The Lone Star College-North Harris Concert Choir and The Woodlands Chorale will be combining their musical talents to present Brahms Requiem on April 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Theater at LSC-North Harris. The community is invited to attend this free event.
This edition of the Brahms Requiem is for chorus, two pianos, soprano and baritone soloists. It comprises seven movements, lasting approximately 70 minutes.
“Personally, I have sung this work a number of times in my career,” said Dave Faber, LSC-North Harris director of choirs. “The first time I sang it was when I was in college. It continues to be one of my favorite pieces of choral music, and I am very excited about introducing it to my students.”
The LSC-North Harris Concert Choir is an ensemble of 35 students, open to all members of the campus community, and The Woodlands Chorale is an auditioned community ensemble, comprised of 35 singers. This will be the second concert collaboration by the two organizations. In December of 2011, they performed the Vivaldi Gloria together.
