Opus 7 – The King of Glory
Loren Pontén, Artistic Director


Opus 7 presents the dramatic Requiem for choir and chamber string orchestra by Armenia’s greatest composer Tigran Mansurian, dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide that occurred in Turkey from 1915 to 1917. The Los Angeles Times described Mansurian’s music as “that in which deep cultural pain is quieted through an eerily calm, heart-wrenching beauty.” Mansurian’s Requiem reconciles the sound and sensibility of his country’s ancient musical traditions with those of Western practices and the Latin Requiem text. Also included on the program is Northwest composer Bern Herbolsheimer’s Stabat Mater with choir, soprano soloist, string quartet and oboe; and Opus 7’s Composer-In-Residence John Muehleisen’s The King of Glory with special guest Jubilate! Young Women’s Ensemble. Loren Pontén conducts this annual concert for the penitential season of Lent.

The pre-concert talk has been CANCELLED. There will be a pre-concert talk at 7:00pm on the second floor of Cathedral Place (803 Terry Avenue).
