The OEBGMC Spring Concert traditionally is an array of classical music offerings. This year is no exception. The title of the concert is PEACE WITHIN and features Requiem in D Minor by Cherubini. Life and death are so intertwined that to celebrate either requires an understanding of both. Regarded by Beethoven as the greatest composer of his time, Cherubini grappled with his own death by composing this impassioned Requiem for Men's Chorus. Intertwining each movement, you will hear twentieth-century American works that celebrate all that is life: love, happiness and friendship. In this way, we juxtapose death
with life, opening the possibility to find Peace Within.
