Join us for a Concert of Hope and Remembrance for the people of Haiti.

Jan 28, 2010

DelVal will host a special Concert of Hope and Remembrance for the people of Haiti. The concert will feature the Palisades Community Chorus performing Benjamin Britten's cantata Rejoice in the Lamb and Maurice Durufle's Requiem. The concert will be held at 7:30 PM on Saturday February 6th at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church on 235 E. State Street in Doylestown. All proceeds from the concert will be donated to the Haitian Relief Fund at Mt. Carmel. The minimum donation is $10.

The two works on the program arose out of the chaos and destruction following World War II. Like centuries of composers before them, Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) and Maurice Duruflé (1902-1986) sought solace from the crushing events of the war through musical composition. In light of the ongoing human crisis taking place in Haiti, we feel their musical expressions of hope and remembrance resonate especially clearly. Please join us for this special concert.
