Colby Symphony Orchestra, Eric Thomas, conductor
Saturday, May 4, and Sunday, May 5
7:30 p.m., Lorimer Chapel
Nicolás Alberto Dosman leads the Colby College Chorale, Colby-Kennebec Choral Society, and the Colby Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Fauré’s spectacular Requiem. Far from the painful and frightening impact often associated with this genre, Fauré’s Requiem stands apart as an innovative expression of a happy deliverance and an aspiration towards celestial delight. Eric Thomas will lead the Colby Symphony in Schumann’s Manfred overture and a work featuring the winner of the Colby Concerto Competition.
