Date: March 15, 2011
Location: California, USA
Choir type: Community Choirs
The Valley Concert Chorale will be joined by singers from the Ohlone Chamber Singers and the San Francisco Concert Chorale for this memorial to the tragic events of September 11th, 2001. The concert will feature Arthur Honegger's Le Roi David (King David), which was composed in 1921 as incidental music for Rene Morax's play by the same name. The work established Honegger's reputation as a composer. Two years later he added Morax's libretto to create the symphonic psalm that you will hear in our performance. The work features an orchestra and soloists as well as a narrator, who will help tell the story of King David's life.
The concert will also feature Herbert Howell's Requiem, which was composed in 1936. This work will be unaccompanied.
The concert is will be held on March 18th at 8:00 PM at the Valley Community Church in Pleasanton, CA. Tickets are available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/producer/21565. For more information visit our web site at www.valleyconcertchorale.org, or send email to email@example.com.
