IF YOU MISSED IT on St. Patty’s Day:

Firstly, we’re terribly sorry for you, knowing that you missed an OUTSTANDING performance when LJ Pres Concert Series proudly presented the brass brilliance of OMAR LATEEF and members of the Nu Deco Ensemble. But it’s not too late! 

This was a beautiful and varied program featuring radiant brass works of BACH, VIVALDI, PIAZZOLLA, EWAZEN, EWALD, the ARUTUNIAN trumpet solo with amazing piano, and more.

If you (sadly) missed the encore, a rousing rendition of “Amazing Grace” (the Canadian Brass arrangement), you’ll most certainly want to check it out now and listen through to the end. So:

It was thrilling for LJPC Chancel Choir and professional orchestra to perform Mozart’s Requiem in June 2023. This masterpiece of choral music holds a special place in the hearts of music enthusiasts around the world, and we were honored to present it to you in all its grandeur.

To ensure you can fully appreciate the profound beauty and meaning behind each movement, we prepared a comprehensive program for the concert. This program not only outlines the order of the musical pieces but also provides essential translations from Latin to English. Understanding the text is crucial to grasp the depth and emotional impact of Mozart’s Requiem, and we hope you enjoy having all the tools to fully immerse yourself in this extraordinary composition.
