Madison Resident to Solo with Morris Choral Society on May 31

May 17, 2014 at 6:45 PM

The 75-voice Morris Choral Society concludes their 42nd season on Saturday, May 31, at 8:00 p.m. with a performance of one of the most beloved choral pieces of all time, the “Requiem” by Maurice Duruflé. The concert will be held at the United Methodist Church on the Green in Morristown and will also include works by Franz Biebl, Felix Mendelssohn and Randall Thompson. 

The concert, which includes a full orchestra and guest soloists, will be dedicated to the memory of the Choral Society members who have passed away over the years. The guest organist for Duruflé “Requiem” will be Ian Tomesch of Morristown, principal organist for St. Mary’s Abbey at Delbarton. Other soloists include harpist Merynda Adams of Madison, bass-baritone Stephen Bryant of Montclair and mezzo-soprano Denise Mihalik of Piscataway.

Duruflé was a 20th Century French composer who based his “Requiem” on the beautiful Gregorian Chants he loved. This much loved choral work has three versions and Morris Choral Society artistic director Wayne Walters has selected the full orchestral version for this performance. Handling the challenging organ solos will be Ian Tomesch, who is the principal organist for St. Mary’s Abbey at the Delbarton School. A graduate of Delbarton and Yale University, Mr. Tomesch has achieved numerous awards including recognition from the Yale School of Music, Pi Lambda Honor Society, American Guild of Organists, the Albert Schweitzer Organ Festival, the Music Educators Association and the Professional Music Teachers Guild.
