Festival Details - "The Springfield Choral Society Presents "In Paradisum""...

Start: Friday, May 17, 2024 7:30PM
End: Friday, May 17, 2024 9:30PM

Is paradise in our past, eternally lost in the Fall? Or is paradise in our future, a utopian vision towards which we eternally aspire? Can it be found here on Earth? Or is it located in the Beyond? Is paradise a place, an external environment? Or is it an internal state of the spirit, a way of seeing?

With its May 17th concert, titled In Paradisum, the Springfield Choral Society presents a simple answer to all of these questions: YES.

Beginning with the gospel folk tune, "The Unclouded Day", arranged by Shawn Kirchner, we will take you from the Paradise of Heaven to Paradise on Earth and everywhere in between. Gabriel Faure's Requiem is known affectionately as the "gentle Requiem" gives us a different perspective musically than many other requiems. See our website,, for more details on our chorus and concert.

Having focused on the start of life with our December program, "Unto Us A Child Is Born," this program will turn towards the latter phases of life. Also, 25% of our ticket proceeds will be going to benefit the SIU Alzheimer's Center, whose vital work is bringing us steadily closer to the vision of the novelist Jean Paul: "Recollection is the only paradise from which we cannot be turned out."


Price: General Admission: USD 20.00

Artists: Jacobsen Woollen, Alice Edwards, Musicians of the Illinois Symphony Orchestra
