Program to include:

Maurice Ravel: Concerto in G Major
Lili Boulanger: D’un matin de printemps
Ernest Bloch: Nigun
Gabriel Fauré: Requiem
One of Faure’s best known works, his Requiem, a “hymn of solace and supplication,” is a choral-orchestral setting of the Catholic Mass for the Dead and is filled with peaceful, serene, and calming melodies that are among the most beautiful in choral repertoire. Venezuelan-American pianist Vanessa Perez returns to perform Ravel’s Concerto in G Major. Praised for her “bold, passionate performing style allied with musicianship of keen sensitivity, [Perez] is not to be taken lightly.”
