Jacksonville Children’s Chorus, Voices of Jacksonville Collaborate with Southside United Methodist Choir and Orchestra for Fauré Requiem

Published Thursday, October 17, 2019


Voices of Jacksonville and members of the Touring Choir from the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus (JCC) join with the Adult Choir from Southside United Methodist Church to present Fauré Requiem, A Memorial Concert. The combined choir, along with orchestra will be directed by Darren Dailey.


The concert will be held on Sunday, November 3, 2019, 6:00pm at Southside United Methodist Church, 3120 Hendricks Ave, Jacksonville, FL 32207. Admission is free and open to the public. The concert was funded in part by the Liles Music and Dailey Music Funds. Featured performers also include Judy Steinmeyer on violin, Kayo Ishimaru on harp, and Chohee Kim on organ.


Gabriel Fauré composed his Requiem in D minor between 1887 and 1890. This choral-orchestral setting of the shortened Catholic Mass for the Dead in Latin is Fauré’s best-known larger works. The focus of the text is on eternal rest and consolation for the deceased and their loved ones.


President and Artistic Director for the JCC and Music Director at Southside United Methodist Church, Darren Dailey, says  The Fauré Requiem is a comforting contemplation on the peacefulness of death. Faure's compositional approach is a departure from the more vivid funerary masses of Verdi, Berlioz and Mozart. Rather, its message is delivered for the most part in a solacing, tender tranquility.
