The Steiner Chorale, supported by members of the Lansing Symphony Orchestra will present two lovely but different settings of the Requiem mass. The first of these masterworks is the beloved and moving Requiem by W.A. Mozart, using a version that is drawn from Mozart’s autograph manuscript. The second is the thrilling Requiem for the Living, composed by Dan Forrest in 2013. Interpolated into the traditional text are an exciting percussive section containing the “Vanity, Vanity” verses from Ecclesiastes and some biting words from Job. The lyrical and hopeful “Lux Aeterna” is augmented by verses from Matthew, sung in English. The concert will begin at 7:00 PM at University United Methodist Church, 1120 South Harrison Road, East Lansing, MI. Admission is $10.00, but students with ID are welcome at no charge. A reception will take place following the concert.
Please join us on Saturday, December 17 at 7:00 pm as Steiner Chorale presents Mid-Winter Songs at University United Methodist Church in East Lansing. We will be featuring songs by John Rutter, Moses Hogan, Johannes Brahm, Gustav Holst, and more. Admission is free for all patrons.
If you are able, consider bringing a non-perishable food item in support of the Greater Lansing Food Bank. Steiner Chorale will also be collecting a free will offering to help with ongoing costs of the chorale and to offset the cost of our upcoming trip to New York City to perform at Carnegie Hall.
Due to the current COVID situation all rehearsals are temporarily postponed. The chorale is eager to resume rehearsals in the fall but are hesitant to announce a start date due to obvious circumstances. Please stay tuned for future announcements posted at either our Facebook page or our website.
Unfortunately, due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, the Steiner Chorale has canceled its Armeling Vocal Scholarship competition originally scheduled for March 15th. The Steiner Chorale has also decided to postpone its March 13th concert featuring the Bach Magnificat and the John Rutter Requiem. A new date and time is yet to be determined. All of this is unfortunate but a necessary step to help prevent the spread of the virus.Continue reading “March concert and Armeling Competition Canceled”
