Rumor has it â€œRequiemâ€ is a dream. The piece of choral literature by John Rutter will be performed on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. by the Lincolnton High School Concert Choir.
If you go, you will hear a very dramatic piece about God and death and hope and light. Of course, itâ€™s sung in Latin, so some of it may go over your head, but donâ€™t worry â€“ pretty sound is universal and requires no translation.
Chorus students at the school have been working on it diligently since the start of the spring semester. They seem to prefer it to the standard school chorus music, perhaps because of the lack of choreography.
The performance is being held at the Lincoln Cultural Center and will benefit, go figure, the Lincoln Cultural Center. Tickets can be purchased at the Lincoln Cultural Center Gift Shop or on the evening of the show. For more information call 704-732-9055.
