Requiem by John Rutter, with chamber orchestra and Sherri Seiden, Soprano. As one of the most prolific composers of the last 35 years, John Rutter has established himself in the forefront of choral composers both in the U.S.A and in his native England. Requiem was Rutter's first composition written without being commissioned, and has wide appeal to both singers and audiences while preserving a affirming spiritual context centered around themes of light and consolation.
All rehearsals will be at Roswell UMC on selected Monday evenings at 7 - 9:30 p.m. The Saturday dress rehearsal and Sunday performance will also be at Roswell UMC.
