On March 17 at 7 pm at Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Master Chorale will present Maurice Durufile's REQUIEM, OP. 9. Associate Conductor Jenny Wong will lead the performance. She will also conduct Dale Trumbore's HOW TO GO ON as a companion piece to the Requiem.

Jenny Wong
REQUIEM, OP. 9, the composer's evocation of the essence of Gregorian style, was a particular favorite of previous Master Chorale Music Directors, Roger Wagner and Paul Salamunovich, both of whom were contemporaries of the composer. Instilled with emotion, the Requiem leaves listeners with a lingering mood of optimism.

Dale Trumbore

Trumbore's "secular requiem" HOW TO GO ON won the 2017 ASCAP Young Composer's Award. A setting of poems by Barbara Crooker, Amy Fleury and Laura Foley, the piece finds beauty and release in the embrace of everyday life, ultimately offering up solace.
