For our second concert of the 2018-2019 Season, we invite you to share two choral works with us; one well-known, John Rutter’s Requiem and the world premiere of Richard Burchard’s Stabat Mater, which was written for the Paris Choral Society and the American Cathedral choir.
On March 29 and 30, come discover with us the musical intensity of faith and the heart, under the high stone arches of the American Cathedral in Paris
** And as a special treat, please consider joining us also before the concert, at the American University of Paris (7th arr) on Tuesday, March 26, from 7pm – 9pm, in a special evening with Richard Burchard in anticipation of the World Premiere of the Stabat Mater. The world premiere of this beautiful work represents an opportunity for the American community of Paris to gather around a uniquely American work in order that we all might learn more about music, art, passion, and faith. In a “Larry King”-esque interview, Mr. Burchard will enlighten the audience on the intricacies and inspiration behind his choral works. Please contact us if you have particular questions or comments which you would like addressed during the interview and discussion. There will be a short reception afterward. Special thanks to the American University of Paris for providing the venue and hosting the event with us.
