American Cathedral Plans Concert for Benefit of Tsunami Sufferers
In response to the horror of the ever-mounting death toll in South Asia, the American Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Paris will present a performance of the Mozart Requiem on Sunday, January 16 at 5 p.m. The soloists will be Andrea ROSE ROUSSEAUX, soprano; Louise CALLINAN, mezzo-soprano; Hervé LAMY, tenor; and Reuben THOMAS, bass.
Members of the Cathedral Choir, the Paris Choral Society, and the choirs of other English-speaking churches in Paris, will sing this moving work, accompanied by the Paris Choral Society Orchestra. Also on the program is Adagio for Strings by Nigel Keay, a short elegiac work inspired by Indonesian gamelan music.
Edward Tipton, Cathedral Organist-Choirmaster and Paris Choral Society Music Director, suggests that participating in the concert will provide a powerful and personal way to express solidarity with the people of coastal South Asia, both for the musicians and for the audience. ALL proceeds will go to Episcopal Relief and Development/South Asia Fund.
Although tickets are priced at only 30 euros (15 euros, students), additional contributions will be encouraged. Tickets will be available at the door (so please plan on arriving AT LEAST 30 minutes early) and at FNAC and Virgin Records.
The concert is being organized in cooperation with the Paris Choral Society and Les Arts George V (LAGV) the Cathedral’s not-for-profit arts association. Checks can be made payable to LAGV with the initials ERD noted on the memo line. Those unable to attend the concert may still contribute to the cause by sending checks, made out as above, to LAGV, c/o the American Cathedral, 23 avenue George V, 75008 Paris, France.
