Spring Concert Announcement

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.
