HONORING THE DEAD
PRESENTED BY THE COLORADO CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
THOMAS BLOMSTER, CONDUCTOR
A Colorado Premiere!
Voices West Chorus, Special Guest Performance
Colorado Chamber Orchestra’s last concert of the year features a heavy double-hitter lineup: Mozart’s enduring Requiem plus the west of the Mississippi premier of Richard Burchard’s “In Memoriam”, a modern mass with sacred text from the traditional Latin as well as poems by Christina Rosetti and Rainer Maria Rilke. Mr. Burchard is in increasing demand for commissions and workshops domestically and abroad; an all Burchard concert is slated for a Carnegie Hall premier in 2017. Colorado audiences have the opportunity to experience the music of this extraordinary self-taught composer ahead of audiences in New York City.
