UPCOMING PERFORMANCES

 

Voce's 25th Anniversary Season!

 

Brahms' Requiem
with original four-hand piano arrangement 

Friday, April 4, 2014 at 8 pm
 St. John Neumann Church, 11900 Lawyers Rd, Reston, VA 20191

Saturday, April 5, 2014 at 8 pm
Oakton United Methodist Church, 2951 Chain Bridge Rd, Oakton, VA 22124 

Tickets: $10 for all seats, general admission

The concluding concert of our 25th year opens with our most recent commission, Matthew Harris’ i love you much for a cappella chorus. The remainder of the concert will be Brahms’ masterwork, Ein deutsches Requiem, a work usually associated with large choirs and full orchestras. Brahms himself wrote a very fine four-hand piano accompaniment for his Requiem for use in a house concert of some friends of his, obviously as a much smaller-scaled conception. Not often heard in this version, it will be our honor to present this work as chamber music to our audiences, chamber music focused on the intimate beauty of choral voices singing words of comfort and hope for the living.

Do You Hear the People Sing?

Because popular music is often here today and gone tomorrow, it is frequently dismissed as purely entertainment, song to distract the listener for a while until something new comes along. Some deserves a longer attention, especially songs written in popular styles that speak to the issues of the day, inviting listeners to stay a little longer and consider the intentions of the singers and the songwriters. Of such is this opening concert of Voce’s 2013-2014 season made: songs about finding voice and acceptance, the earth’s future and our own, and the desire of peoples all over the world for freedom. In addition, each of the three concerts of this 25th season will open with a work commissioned by Voce over its history. The first, Sing me to heaven, is a top seller in choral music, and has made Voce’s name known in many places.
