Ordinary People Making Extraordinary Music


SEASON 97: Re-Imagined

San José Symphonic Choir presents Requiem by Gabriel Fauré
Leroy Kromm, Conductor

Kayla Wilfong, Soprano
Leroy Kromm, Baritone

Julian Brown, Violin
Karen Thielen, Harp
Barbara Vella, Organ

Fauré wrote “Everything I managed to entertain by way of religious illusion I put into my Requiem, which moreover is dominated from beginning to end by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest.”

This virtual performance was created during the COVID pandemic of 2020 by singers and soloists each recording themselves at home. The organ was recorded at Saint Andrew’s Church, Saratoga, California.

Special Thank You to Julian Brown for his many gifts shared with sound mixing, editing and video presentation. Produced by Julian Brown and Tamami Honma – Cal Arte Productions

SJSC programming is our gift to the community – lifting spirits and creating joy!
