2021 VIRTUAL FAURE REQUIEM
A Welcome from our Artistic Director: Rachael Rose
Hello and Welcome to the Spring 2021 Virtual Faure Requiem Project!
Any and all people are welcome to participate and we are hoping to have people from all around the world!!
Most of 2020 and even the start of 2021 have been very full of loss and hardship. Certainly the most loss and hardship I have ever witnessed in my life and I’m sure many of you.
This project is meant to be a place for us to recognize and name all our losses from the last 14 months whether from COVID 19, Racism, sickness, life changes, any loss that we have experienced. But it is ALSO to establish and solidly stand together in faith and hope of and for the future.
This is a very special project for me personally as the Faure Requiem was the first requiem I ever learned. I have performed it many times in my life. I have shared this requiem with many beloved friends, colleagues, and a host of musicians who have always poured themselves into this stunning work.
My vision for this Project is to engage as many pianists, organists, instrumentalists, and singers with whom I’ve had the honor of working in the past. It is also to engage new friends and share this beautiful project together.
I envision this as immortalizing our need to make music and art together, in community, as well as our unflinching faith and hope.
