Elegies of Light is a collaborative concert between the Southern Crescent Symphony Orchestra, the Clayton State Community Chorus, and the Clayton State University Chorale. Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem is among the most beloved choral-orchestral masterworks ever written and forms the central component of this performance. In addition, works by Frank Ticheli, Morten Lauridsen, and a new composition by CSU faculty member, Dr. Richard Bell, will be performed. This concert will highlight the engagement occurring between faculty, students, and our community partners in the Division of Music at Clayton State University.
