Choral group to present Dan Forrest requiem
Dan Forrest is a South Carolina-based composer whose “Requiem for the Living” has been presented all over the world since its premiere in 2014. A Requiem, at its core, is a prayer for rest—traditionally, for the deceased. The five movements of Forrest’s “Requiem for the Living,” however, form a narrative just as much for the living, and their own struggle with pain and sorrow. The Sandlapper Singers are set to share the stage with the Charleston Southern University Concert Singers and chamber orchestra accompaniment to present this work in Columbia and Mount Pleasant:
The Sandlapper Singers is funded in part by operating support from the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts. For more information about Sandlappers, visit https://sandlappersingers.org/.
