2018 CHORAL FESTIVAL – The monumental
REQUIEM, Op. 5, of Hector Berlioz, will be performed on Sunday, July 29, 4 PM, at Hochstein Performance Hall
in Rochester. Admission to the concert is free.
After 15 successful years, we honor Founding Director, Adrian
Horn, with a performance of the piece to which he has dedicated decades of passionate scholarship, study and performance,
in his own choral edition featuring a part for altos, in its most recent revision. Thanks to Andy, this piece has become feasible
for major symphonic choruses across the country, and several have now added it to their repertoire.
It's no small
accomplishment for any choral festival to mount this work! For FLCF, it will be the fourth time in 15 years. Eric Townell,
Artistic Director of the Rochester Oratorio Society, returns to FLCF as guest conductor this summer. Also returing are Ines
Draskovic, accompanist, our friend and Board member, Dan McInerney, tenor soloist, and the phenomenal Penfield Symphony Orchestra,
with whom we enjoy a rewarding partnership.
Returning members and new singers are always welcome! If you have friends
who love to sing and would enjoy performing this major masterwork, please invite them to join us. The Registration Form is
available for download on the For Members page, along with fliers you may print or post online to help build audience for
this exciting event.

Avenue, Rochester. Doors open 45 minutes before concert time. For further information about the concert, call (856) 431-3722, or firstname.lastname@example.org If you would like to be added to our mailing list,
