Donald Runnicles To Lead Duruflé 'Requiem' for Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

Principal Guest Conductor Donald Runnicles will lead the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in Duruflé's Requiem May 16 and 18, 2013, at 8:00 p.m., in Atlanta Symphony Hall at Woodruff Arts Center.

This work has not been performed by the ASO Chorus since the mid-1980s under renowned Choral Director and former ASO Music Director Robert Shaw. The Requiem will feature longtime friend of the Orchestra, mezzo-soprano Kelley O'Connor, and baritone Edward Parks, who will make his ASO debut.

The French-themed program will also include Debussy's La damoiselle élue, a rarely performed work from the composer's early years, and Messiean's Les offrandes oubilées. Soprano Kiera Duffy will make her ASO debut as the soloist for La damoiselle élue.
