Our fall concert will be performed on Saturday, November 20th, 2021 at the First Lutheran Church in Galesburg at 7:30 pm. This concert celebrates the music of two living composers who are writing some of today’s most important choral works. Dan Forrest’s Requiem for the Living is a five-movement work for chorus and orchestra that deals with human suffering and loss, with music that is incredibly beautiful and moving. Ola Gjeilo’s Luminous Night of the Soul is lush, gorgeous, and rhapsodic, with a text that celebrates the transformative power of music. We are excited to be presenting the Galesburg premiere of these exciting works.
Rehearsals will begin on Monday, August 30th at the First Lutheran Church in Galesburg (364 E Waters Street - parking on the west side). All are welcome, and there are no auditions. Rehearsals begin at 7pm and end at 9pm. Masks are required, and we plan to rehearse at least six feet apart from one another.
If you rehearsed with us in the winter of 2020, please bring your music. If you do not have the music, it will be provided to you for a $5 fee. In addition, there is a $10 member fee each semester for non-students. In order to minimize interaction, please be prepared to pay via check, correct change, or through your phone.
Rehearsals will continue Monday evenings at 7pm with the exception of September 6th.
In addition to your mask, it may be advantageous to bring a book light. We will be rehearsing in the sanctuary, and light may be an issue depending on your location.
