A cordial invitation from

The Community Chorus of Detroit

We cordially invite you to attend the 100-voice, Community Chorus of Detroit’s magnificent, moving Brahms Requiem concerts with full orchestra and professional soloists on Friday, April 24 at 7:30 and Saturday, April 25 at 4:00 at Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church in Detroit’s historic Indian Village neighborhood.  Life, love, and loss are the momentous themes addressed by Brahms in his lush, romantic, and heartfelt Ein Deutsches Requiem.  The composer himself said an equally relevant title for this work would be the “Human Requiem,” and this remarkable music of consolation and contemplation puts the Community Chorus of Detroit’s strengths on full display, ready to sweep you away.  The program opens with three equally touching and reflective works imbued with devotion and love by composers Michael John Trotta, Matthew Emery, and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw, sung by the CCD Chamber Choir, in addition to Mozart’s “Laudate Dominum,” performed by students from the Cass Technical High School music department, members of our CCD Young Artists’ Program.

Tickets will be on sale here at the beginning of April.

All of us in the Community Chorus of Detroit thank you – our supporters – for all you do to help us to continue “Singing in the Heart of Detroit!”
