GPO Connoisseur #4 Finale: For Peace
Finale: For Peace: As we bid farewell to our 107th season, we want our audience to leave with their hearts full. We begin the evening with Beethoven’s tumultuous Consecration of the House with the UNC Combined Chorus. Taking a step back, the GPO, working closely with the Honor Flight of Northern Colorado, will take time to recognize the veterans who bravely served their country during a time of crisis, immediately followed by the poignantly powerful Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber. The evening concludes with one of the most powerful masses of all time, Gabriel Faure’s Requiem in D minor. Heralded as Faure’s greatest composition, this mass, with support of the UNC Combined Chorus, is dominated from beginning to end by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest. Join us for a pre-concert “Peace Panel” at 6:40 pm in the Hensel Phelps Theatre.
