Tri-County Singers to Perform Requiem

Tri-County Singers will be performing Requiem by John Leavitt and Te Deum by Mark Hayes under the direction of Abel Searor with accompaniment provided by Terry Pawlenko. The Requiem is a bit different from your typical requiem mass. It is in English and rather than following the text of the mass, it utilizes psalms and other familiar texts as the basis for the piece. Leavitt describes it as a requiem to comfort the living as well as honor those that have died. The Te Deum is a big celebratory work that incorporates some modern chords and ideas with the centuries old text. It is a hymn of praise, also presented in English written for double choir accompanied by piano.

The cantata will be performed on Saturday, April 2 at 6:30 pm at the First Congregational Church in New Haven, Sunday April 3rd at 6:00 pm in Fulton at the Alliance Church, Saturday, April 9th at 6:30 pm at the Red Creek Westbury United Methodist Church and Sunday, April 10th at 2pm at the West Baptist Church, Oswego. All performances are free and all are welcome. For more information please call Abel Searor at (315)529-9080.
