Requiem for the Living

with Sinfonietta Nova of West Windsor, Gail H. Lee, conducting

and Trenton Children’s Chorus Training Choir

Sunday, March 31, 2019 at 4 pm

Sacred Heart Church

343 S. Broad Street, Trenton, NJ




Capital Singers of Trenton, conducted by Vinroy D. Brown, Jr. is proud to partner with Sinfonietta Nova of West Windsor, conducted by Gail H. Lee and members of the Trenton Children’s Chorus, under Artistic Director Patricia Thel.

The eighty-member CST, which serves as the choral voice of the capital region, is led by Artistic Director and Conductor Vinroy D. Brown, Jr.  The chorus will sing additional selections, including Forrest’s “And Can It Be?” and Karl Jenkins’ “Benedictus” from The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace.

Gail Lee, Artistic Director and Conductor of the West-Windsor-based Sinfonietta Nova, will conduct the three community ensembles in Forrest’s Requiem. Dan Forrest, a contemporary composer, has an unusual take on the requiem form, traditionally a mass for the repose of the souls of the dead.  Forrest’s 2014 setting rearranges and supplements the traditional texts to address the living, and the styles of its five movements range from the frenetic to the ethereal.

Conductors Brown and Lee wanted to further highlight the unique sound of the piece by collaborating with the Trenton Children’s Chorus, an organization that Brown has been affiliated with for many years.   Under Artistic Director Patricia Thel, the Trenton Children’s Chorus empowers the academic, social, and spiritual lives of children in PreK through 12th grade through artistry in music.  More information on is available on the Chorus website at http://www.trentonchildrenschorus.org/home.html.

Sinfonietta Nova is a community orchestra that provides professional-quality musical performances and cultural enrichment to the central New Jersey area. More information on Sinfonietta Nova is available on its website at http://sinfoniettanova.org/.
