Carson Chamber Singers Annual Fall Concerts
Friday, Oct. 28, 2016, in Virginia City
Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2016, in Carson City
Carson Chamber Singers, conducted by Michael Langham, will present its 2016 Fall
Concerts on Friday, October 28, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Mary's in the Mountains,
111 S. E Street in Virginia City, and on Tuesday, November 1, at 7:30 p.m. at
Shepherd of the Sierra, 3680 US Highway 395 South in Carson City.
This fall the Singers will present a concert of Renaissance music, including works
by Palestrina, Zingarelli, Purcell, and others. A highlight of the program is the Nevada
premiere of Requiem for the Living, written by Dan Forrest in 2013 and performed
internationally. The Requiem, accompanied by an instrumental ensemble, emphasizes
consolation for the living rather than grief and judgment. It is tonal and accessible,
and is noted for soaring melody and luminous harmony. Forrest has said that he took inspiration,
in part, from images of space from the Hubble Telescope and images of Earth from
the International Space Station.
Tickets are $10 and are available online at CCSymphony.com (see "BUY NOW" buttons, below); at the Carson City
Visitors Bureau, 716 N. Carson St., Carson City; and at the door. Youth ages 18 and
under attend for free.
Carson Chamber Singers was founded in 1985 as the select choral group of the
Carson City Symphony. They have performed throughout northern Nevada, the Tahoe area,
and as far as Sacramento, CA. They have sung with the Carson City Symphony and the
Reno Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus.
Carson Chamber Singers, a performing group of the Carson City Symphony Association,
is supported in part by public funds through a grant from the Nevada Arts Council
and the National Endowment for the Arts, and by private donations.
