About this Concert

Dan Forrest’s Requiem for the Living draws on centuries of tradition in choral settings of the Requiem Mass (The Latin Mass for the Dead.) Rather than focusing on the souls of those who have departed and the agonies of the day of judgment, Forrest seeks to offer solace to those left behind. With lyricism, harmonic warmth, and textual choices unique to his own setting, he achieves an emotional directness and accessibility for singers and listeners.  

The  program will also showcase a selection of the music Chorale will perform in Normandy, France, where we will represent the United States and Colorado Springs at the ceremonies commemorating the anniversary of D-Day.

In light of what we have all experienced in the last two years, we find a profound resonance between Forrest’s Requiem and the purpose of our participation in the Normandy ceremonies. Music binds us together, offering us connection and healing in the shared human experience of loss.

About the Artwork

Les Braves (The Braves) is a sculpture in tribute to the Allies that landed on Omaha beach. The sculpture is located in Vierville-sur-Mer on Omaha beach itself at the junction of dog red and easy green sector.

The sculpture was created by Anilore Banon and consists of three elements.

The Wings of Hope
So that the spirit which carried these men on June 6th, 1944 continues to inspire us, reminding us that together it is always possible to changing the future.
Rise, Freedom!
So that the example of those who rose against barbarity, helps us remain standing strong against all forms of inhumanity.
The Wings of Fraternity
So that this surge of brotherhood always reminds us of our responsibility towards others as well as ourselves.
On June 6th, 1944 these men were more than soldiers, they were our brothers.
