The University Singers and conductor
extraordinaire Peter Eklund bring us the crème de la
crème of the French choral repertoire — Maurice
Duruflé’s Requiem. One of
America’s most promising young conductors, Christopher Lees,
shares his joie de vivre in his Lincoln debút featuring Francis
Poulenc’s Concerto for Organ, Strings, and Timpani with the
Abendmusik Orchestra and organist par excellence Tom Trenney. This tour
de force is sure to have that perfect je ne sais quoi for both amateur
and connoisseur! Arrive at 3:00 p.m. for our pre-concert talk, where
we’ll discuss the history of the pieces and their composers.
