Symphony Chorus to perform music of Fauré

Charleston, W.Va. – The West Virginia Symphony Chorus will give two performances of music by Gabriel Fauré Sunday, May 12, in Charleston and Sunday, May 19, in Huntington with Dr. David Castleberry conducting.

Highlighting the program will be Fauré’s Requiem. In addition, the chorus will perform other works by Fauré, including Ave Maria, Tantum Ergo, and Cantique de Jean Racine.


“The music of Gabriel Fauré is some of the most immediately appealing in the entire choral repertoire,” Castleberry said. “It is at once personal and universal, lyrical and substantial, approachable yet challenging.”


The Charleston performance is at 7 p.m. at Christ Church United Methodist, located at Quarrier and Morris Streets, while the the Huntington performance will take place at 5 p.m. at St. John's Episcopal Church at 3000 Washington Blvd.

Admission is free and open to the public. Donations will be gratefully accepted
