Trinity Episcopal Cathedral will host a “Faure’s Requiem” concert featuring UA Little Rock Choirs on Saturday, April 29.

The concert, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 7:30 p.m. April 29 at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, 310 W. 17th St., Little Rock.

UA Little Rock Choirs will be performing “Requiem, Op. 48” by Gabriel Fauré with Dr. Lorissa Mason as conductor and Dr. Colin MacKnight on organ. UA Little Rock music students Kyndal Collins, soprano, and Christian Waldron, baritone, will perform as the concert’s soloists.

“Finding opportunities for our singers to experience singing a master work like Faure’s Requiem is important,” said Dr. Mason, director of choral activities at UA Little Rock. “The composer originally wrote this piece for a small ensemble of instruments and choir, and many years later John Rutter edited it so it can be performed with solo organ and choir. This is the edition we are performing at the end of the month. We are fortunate to have wonderful organists in Little Rock, and we look forward to working with Dr. Colin MacKnight at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral on this concert. Our students have worked diligently, and they have grown through this music.”
