Street Requiem For Those Living & Dying On The Streets says
Come experience for one night only a stage full of volunteer singers & musicians from the Pacific Northwest as they share their passion for music to help the homeless with the Seattle premier of Street Requiem. A choral benefit concert for those living and dying on the streets! Street Requiem gives these souls a voice.

Street Requiem is a multi-movement cantata, scored for choirs, soloists, and chamber orchestras. The work is neither secular nor religious, is intended to be spiritual and includes English, Latin and African lyrics. It aims to bring a sense of peace, remembrance, action and hope to communities struggling with homelessness, poverty, hate-crime and street violence. It is a new major Australian work composed & conceived in 2014 by: Dr. Jonathon Welch AM, and written in collaboration with Dr. Kathleen McGuire and Andy Payne. It premiered in Dallas and San Francisco in 2015 to rave reviews and has been selected as a semi-finalist in the professional choral composition division of The American Prize national non-profit competitions in the performing arts. (For more information, see http://theamericanprize.blogspot.com.au/2015/08/composer-semi-finalists-2015-choral.html)

This event is sponsored by The Starbucks Chorus Global Month of Service Project and includes over 25 local choral groups from the Puget Sound area.

Ninety percent of the purchase price of the ticket will be distributed evenly among local non-profits directly helping the homeless. Love What You Do – Share it With Others!
