Light and Life: Special Concert

  • Arden PResbyterian Church 2215 Hendersonville Road Arden, NC, 28704 United States (map)

The Asheville Symphony Chorus and Asheville Choral Society join together to present Music of Light and Life.  This concert features major works of two contemporary American composers, favorites of choral singers the world around.

Requiem for the Living is a beautiful and soaring testament to the hope for comfort and the joy of life by Dan Forrest, a prodigious young composer from Greenville, SC, with a growing worldwide reputation. Lux Aeterna ("eternal light") by Morten Lauridsen paints the words of reassurance and comfort "…may eternal light shine upon them…" with a lush and moving texture of choral sound.  

Join us for this collaborative undertaking to bring epic, moving choral music to Western North Carolina.  The concert will be on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 7:30 pm at Arden Presbyterian Church.  Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for youth, and are available at, from a chorus member or at the door.
