UEA Choir and Symphony Orchestra warmly invite you to join them for their spring concert 'Fauré Requiem and Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony' on Thursday 19 March at 7.30pm at St Andrew's Hall, Norwich.

Massing more than 200 performers on stage, comprising students, staff and members of the local community, the choir and orchestra will perform Lili Boulanger's noble graveside oration, Pour les Funerailles d'un Soldat, Gabriel Fauré's gentle and profound Requiem and Camille Saint-Saëns' glorious Symphony No.3 in C minor, Op.78.

Fauré is the presiding genius of this programme. The gentle, profound Requiem carries the title 'Choral Favourite' with grace and dignity. Its touchstone capacity to reflect a deeply human longing is seemingly inexhaustible. The meteoric Lili Boulanger was both a student and a musical confidante of Fauré. Her noble graveside oration comes from the same year as she became the first ever female winner of the Prix de Rome. Saint-Saëns' Third Symphony comes from the years of his greatest fame. Glorious music conceals forward thinking, formal innovation and a search for musical unity.

The choir and orchestra will be joined in their performance of Fauré's Requiem by Jenny Stafford (soprano) and Jake Muffett (baritone)

Tickets cost £4 - £12. Tickets are available to purchase: by phone or in person from St George's Music Shop (Tel: 01603 626414, Address: St George's Music Shop, 17-19 St Georges St, Norwich, Norfolk, NR3 1AB), online from www.uea.ac.uk/music-centre/events/tickets, or on the door (cash or cheque only).
