Their Requiem concerts will feature the iconic work of Mozart’s Requiem in D Minor, featured in the film Amadeus. This concert will be performed by the full Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.

In addition, they will offer two feature numbers by the Chilliwack Children’s Choir – Ave Verum Corpus and To God be Joyful, which they have been hard at work preparing since the beginning of this year. The children will also join the chorus in the singing of the Requiem’s Lacrimosa.

Visit their Facebook page to enjoy a taste of their music. Once there, you can listen to the wonderful soprano soloist for Requiem, Nancy Hasiuk, and read about amazing tenor soloist, Thomas Lamont.

Counter-tenor Shane Hanson, formerly of Chilliwack, will perform the alto solo parts and Mark Fenster of Vancouver is the bass soloist.

There will be two opportunities to come hear these famous works. The first will be 7:30 p.m., Friday, April 7 at Sts. Joachim and Ann Parish in Aldergrove, and admission will be by donation. The main concert event will be 7:30 p.m., Saturday, April 8 at the First Avenue Christian Assembly in Chilliwack.
