I decided to play Brahms’ masterpiece Ein deutsches Requiem today because the Barnard-Columbia Chorus is going to be performing this work next Friday, April 15th (and I’ll be performing in it, as one of the choristers!) There’s still plenty of time to buy tickets! The concert will be at the Church of the Ascension (221 W 107th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam), from 8-10 pm.
Tomorrow, April 4th, marks the 48th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination in Memphis. To remember and honor Dr. King, this program pays tribute to the gospel tradition of his time and region.
