PLYMOUTH - The Pemige- wasset Choral Society (Pemi Choral) is joining with the Plym- outh State University Chorale and their Chamber Singers to present its spring concert featur- ing composer Dan Forrest’s cho- ral work, Requiem for the Living. Dan Forrest choral compositions have become well established in the choral repertoire in the U.S. and around the world. Requiem for the Living, his first major choral work, written in 2013, has quickly become a choral and orchestra favorite for ensembles around the world.
“This is our first collaboration with the Pemigewasset Choral Society,” said Harmony Mar- key, Plymouth State University (PSU) Director of Choral Stud- ies. “This choral collaboration has many benefits, one of them being the chance for the students to see the lifelong effort that peo- ple make to keep singing in their lives, and the lifelong joy it brings them. Joining with Pemi Choral also allows us to sing with an or- chestra of the caliber that will be accompanying the singers.”

 A Choral Trifecta
Pemi Choral joins with two PSU Choirs for April Concerts
  Markey have known each other through their association as music educators. Gunn is also the director of music at Plymouth Regional High School
(PRHS) where he conducts the Concert Band, Jazz Ensem- ble, Concert Choir, and Cham- ber Singers.
This is the first opportunity for each of them to conduct a major Dan Forrest choral work. The collaboration of the three choral groups provides a fuller
choral sound that is enhanced by the rich musical accompaniment of an orchestra. Pemi Choral funded the 15-piece chamber orchestra through its very gener- ous donors and membership who value the opportunity to share an extraordinary musical event with the community. The chorus is also accompanied by collabora- tive pianist Laura Belanger.
“This is a hauntingly beauti- ful piece,” said Gunn. “Forrest titled it Requiem for the Living
because he is making a distinc- tion from traditional requiems which originated as Masses for the dead. The five movements of this requiem end in a majes- tic, energetic and hopeful section that is full of life.”
“In many ways, this choral work resonates with the expe- rience that has touched us all during the past two years of Covid,” said Markey. “I invite the audience to reflect on all that we have lived through, and to focus
on the hopefulness that is follow- ing.”
There are two performances: Thursday, April 21, 7:00 pm at the Silver Center, Plymouth State University, Plymouth, NH and Friday, April 22, 7:00 pm Inter-Lakes High School Audito- rium, Meredith,
NH. Tickets may be pur- chased online or at the door for the PSU concert, and at the door for the Inter-Lakes High School concert.
The Pemi Chorus is a re- gional community chorus based in Plymouth, NH, with a wide-ranging musical
repertoire. Members come from communities throughout the Lakes Region and the White Mountains.
Membership has ranged from 60 to 90 members per semester with a diverse range of ages from high school students to age 80+! They perform concerts in De- cember and in the Spring, and welcome new members at the beginning of each semester. For more information, please visit pe-
