A music event combining Pacific’s choral ensembles and orchestra will take place Friday, May 4. The event will feature music from the classical repertoire “Mozart Requiem.” The theme of the concert is war, reconciliation and healing.
The orchestra is comprised of faculty, students and some professional orchestral players from the Portland Metro area.
The performance will also feature soloists from the Pacific University voice faculty, soprano Anne Reed, mezzo-soprano Angela Niederloh, tenor Les Green and bass Konstanti Kvach.
“It is a rare opportunity to see faculty and students perform together,” said music professor Scott Tuomi.
The highlight of the first half of the concert is a performance of professor Tim Stephens’ piece “In Flanders Fields.” The choral singers wrote piece based on the famous poem by John McCrae in 2005.
“I believe the whole performance is going to be very special,” said Tuomi. “Everyone has worked very hard to put this together and it is a true community effort.”
The concert will be held in the Taylor-Meade Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 for students and $7 for general admission.
