Echoes of Splendor
This concert is anchored by the sublime Requiem by Gabriel Fauré, performed with a chamber orchestra. In addition, the concert will feature the works of several 20th- and 21st-century female composers; some of the music will give a modern voice to works of medieval composer and mystic Hildegard of Bingen. The beautiful Pie Jesu by Lili Boulanger will be sung by mezzo soprano, Margaret Fox. Other composers include Cecilia McDowall, Jocelyn Hagen, Nancy Grundahl, Elaine Hagenberg and Alice Parker.
Saturday, March 4, 7:30 p.m. St. Michael Church, Wheaton
