The Sunday matinee will be followed by my return to Rockville Centre with the St. Agnes Cathedral Orchestra and Chorus to perform Brahms Eine Deutsches Requiem.

BRAHMS GERMAN REQUIEM
June 22 – 7:30 pm

Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys, Cathedral Chorale, Cathedral Singers, Diocesan Boys Choir (and Teens!) of Rockville Centre, Soloists and Orchestra.
Premiered in 1776, when Mozart was 20 years old, the “Organ Solo Mass” has a youthful quality which will ring true as it is performed by our marvelous singing boys of the Cathedral and the Diocese, supported by the experienced men and changed teen voices of our tenor and bass sections of the Choirs.
The work is made even more charming by the use of a solo organ part, giving the piece its special “nickname:” Organ Solo Mass, which makes its appearance in the “Benedictus” section of this concert mass.
Soloists for the concert will include Mr. Jonathan Estabrooks (a graduate of Juilliard) from Toronto who just released a new cd, Christina Franco Stahnke from the Florida State Opera (who grew up in the St. Agnes Choirs!), as well as our own wonderful cantors/soloists: Holly, Peggie, and Christina.
