The Central Virginia Masterworks Chorale will perform two concerts this weekend under the direction of Ryan Tibbetts. The program will include Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem and Cecilia McDowall’s Stabat Mater. In between the two choral pieces, organist Daniel Stipe will play local composer Mary Beth Bennett’s “Hommage á Langlais: Song of Peace in a Time of War.”

The concerts are Friday evening (May 17th) at 7:30 p.m. in Grace Baptist Church on Dover Road (Windsor Farms neighborhood) and Sunday afternoon (May 19th) at 3:00 p.m. in Duncan Memorial United Methodist Church in Ashland.

Artistic Director and Conductor Ryan Tibbetts stopped by our WCVE Music studios to discuss the performances. I hope you enjoy our chat!

Yours in good music,
