Event description
Utah premiere of "An Appalachian Requiem" by Timothy Michael Powell

About this event

*Because higher risk individuals will be in attendance, masks are requested for all audience members.

This deeply touching piece will present portions of the traditional Requiem Mass texts, as well as scriptures adapted from the Gospels and the Song of Solomon. Set for choir and a small chamber orchestra, the work is intended to be accessible, yet profound, poignant and celebratory- spiritual yet not formally liturgical. Utilizing timeless, folk-like melodies, and quoting from and alluding to Appalachian shape-note hymns, this new work is a deeply personal composition by Timothy Michael Powell commemorating the life and loss of his daughter.

The program will also feature both sets of Aaron Copland’s “Old American Songs” and “The Promise of Living” from his opera The Tender Land.

Organizer Salt Lake Choral Artists

Organizer of Consider the Lilies: An Appalachian Requiem

The Salt Lake Choral Artists (SLCA) is one of America's premiere community choirs, continuing a tradition of superb choral singing that began as the Jay Welch Chorale more than thirty years ago. When Dr. Brady Allred was appointed as Artistic Director and Conductor in 2004, the group was reorganized to include a large concert choir of approximately 150 voices, and a women’s choir and chamber choir, each approximately 50 voices strong. In 2009, the group added a children's choir, a professional-level touring group was added in 2010, and youth and men's choirs were added in 2013.

Dr. Allred's wealth of choral conducting experience, remarkable range of musical talent, and exceptional leadership has brought SLCA to a higher level of artistic excellence and generated new enthusiasm among choir members, serious interest from the media, and the attention of donors who recognize the importance of promoting quality performing arts in the area.
