As the finale of the 2018-2019 season, Symphony Chorus of New Orleans’ Music Director Steven Edwards has programmed contrasting choral masterworks from the 18th and 20th centuries. The Duruflé Requiem features Trinity Music Director Paul Weber, performing the virtuoso solo organ part, with additional solos by mezzo-soprano Sheila McDermott and ’cellist Jonathan Gerhardt. The Bach Magnificat calls for five vocal soloists: Joy Meade and RuthAnn Chadwick, Sopranos; Sheila McDermott, Mezzo-soprano; Dana Wilson, Tenor; and Michael Meade, Bass-baritone. Both works employ a professional chamber orchestra including the brilliance of three trumpets and timpani.
