FEB 2017 :: STREET REQUIEM: Featuring Frederica von Stade

The Choral Project + Frederica von Stade

The Choral Project is pleased to announce its first concert of the New Year, Street Requiem, featuring internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade — described by the New York Times as ”one of America’s finest artists and singers,” — February 15 and 18, San José and Santa Cruz. This multi-movement work also features local Bay Area jazz vocalist Juanita Harris.

Composed in 2014 by Kathleen McGuire, Andy Payne and Jonathon Welch, Street Requiem helps to bring a sense of peace, remembrance, and hope to communities struggling with homelessness, poverty, war, hate crime, and street violence.

The work is neither secular nor religious, but is intended to be spiritual and includes English and African lyrics, as well as traditional Latin text. While at times deeply moving, the work is optimistic and uplifting, and employs Gospel, Celtic, neo-Romantic, neo-Baroque, and contemporary compositional styles and instrumentation to reflect the multicultural and multi-faith traditions of modern city living.

Ms. von Stade added ”Any chance to be a part of this wonderful work and honor all those individuals in our cities who know the sorrow of homelessness is a great privilege. To have music as our connection is pure joy and I am deeply grateful for the experience.”

10% of ticket sales will be donated to nonprofit organizations working with the homeless in San Jose and Santa Cruz. Please join us to support those living on our city streets. Street Requiem gives these souls a voice.
