David Lockington, conductor
Modesto Symphony Chorus – Dr. Daniel R. Afonso, Jr., chorus director

STRAVINKSY Rite of Spring & FAURÉ Requiem
Stravinsky • Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rite of Spring)
Fauré • Requiem

Over 100 years after the tumultuous premiere, The Rite of Spring continues to thrill audiences with the unmistakable rhythmic complexities and musical colors of Stravinsky. If The Rite of Spring is thought of as angular and primal, the Fauré Requiem is just the opposite. Fauré’s setting for the Requiem strays from the expected with a peaceful and serene atmosphere that will feature the full force of the MSO Chorus.
