A German Requiem will be performed by the St. Catherine Choral Society
The St. Catherine Choral Society will perform Ein Deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem) by Johannes Brahms, Sunday, April 29, at 3 p.m., in The O’Shaughnessy on the St. Paul campus of St. Catherine University.
Unlike most Requiems, which are settings of the text of the Latin Mass for the Dead, this beloved symphonic choral masterpiece stirringly presents scriptural texts that offer comfort and consolation to the living. It will be sung in the original German.
Joining the performance will be soprano Kristie Tigges, an associate professor in the St. Kate's Music Department, bass-baritone Stanford Felix and an orchestra of professional musicians. Patricia Cahalan Connors, Music and Theater Department chair and professor, will conduct.
Admission to the concert is $10 for adults, $5 for students. Tickets available at the door.
