What’s Interesting About This Concert?

  • A Requiem or Requiem Mass is a musical composition associated with death, dying, and mourning, even when they lack religious or liturgical relevance. Requiems are beautiful masterpieces that evoke powerful emotion from the listener.
  • A Count and wealthy landowner from Austria commissioned the Requiem when his young wife died, but planned on commissioning the piece from Mozart and passing it off as his own. Mozart died before he could finish the work and one of his students finished the piece and copied the entire score in his own handwriting so it was virtually impossible to determine who wrote what.
  • American composer Morten Lauridsen blends poetry and the human voice, which he calls the most wonderful and personal of all musical instruments. Lauridsen composed the requiem Lux Aeterna in 1997 the year his mother died. She was the muse making Lauridsen one of many composers who composed requiems inspired by their mothers.
  • Rimsky-Korsakov wrote that his Russian Easter Overture was written to convey the legendary and heathen aspect of the holiday, and the transition from the solemnity and mystery of the evening of Passion Saturday to the unbridled pagan-religious celebrations of Easter Sunday morning.

The Railway People: A Survivor and a Songwriter with Raymond Meade @ The Speak Easy Broad Ripple
May 5 @ 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm
After visiting Auschwitz, songwriter Raymond Meade found himself searching for a project that could properly commemorate the victims of the Holocaust. “The Railway People” is the result of that search. In 2015, Raymond contacted Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor who agreed to help Raymond make “The Railway People” a reality. The pair returned to Auschwitz together to the selection platform where Eva last saw her parents and sisters decades before. There they recorded Raymond’s original poem “How Could It Be,” which he used in his song “At the Top of the Stairs,” and shot footage that would become “The Railway People.” That was the beginning of a unique and lasting friendship.

The event will consist of a screening of “The Railway People,” a presentation and performance by Raymond, and Q&A. Drinks and food will be available for purchase. Admission is $5 per person. Proceeds will go to CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center.
