WWI Armistice Centennial Concerts

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Armistice to World War I, The Clarion Choir joins forces with the Cathedral Choral Society (Washington, DC), the Kansas City Chorale, The Chamber Choir of St. Tikhon’s Monastery (PA), and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s under the baton of Maestro Leonard Slatkin to give the world premiere of Alexander Kastalsky’s epic Commemoration for Fallen Brothers. This work, written in 1917 by the leader of the Moscow Synodal School of Choral Singing, honors those who lost their lives in the 'Great War'. The piece is an ecumenical Requiem representing the different languages, faiths and musical traditions of France, Serbia, Great Britain, Russia, India, Romania, Japan and the United States. The world premiere of this work will take place in Washington, DC, at Washington National Cathedral on Sunday, October 21st, commemorating the Armistice Centenary. An additional performance of the a cappella version of this work (recently recorded by Clarion), Memory Eternal to the Fallen Heroes, will take place at the National WWI Museum and Memorial on Sunday, October 14th.
