Composer Sarah Kirkland Snider’s Mass for the Endangered has been described as a celebration of, and an elegy for, the natural world—animals, plants, insects, the planet itself—an appeal for greater awareness, urgency, and action. Luminos Chamber Orchestra joins the singers of Luminos Ensemble to present this powerful and uplifting work, along with an all-new work by LCO bassist Adam Hill.

Verdi’s extraordinary and awe-inspiring Requiem combines the drama of opera, the thrill of wonderful symphonic writing, and stellar and virtuosic solo moments, with a deeply personal expression of grief. Although it sets the words of the Requiem mass, Verdi never intended this powerful music for church use, but as a public memorial to one of Italy’s cultural icons. Luminos Ensemble and Luminos Chamber Orchestra join forces with Island Choral Society, and soloists Georgia Edwards, Hannah O’Donnell, Justin Simard, and Brodie MacRae to present this spectacular, once-in-a-generation performance of one of the greatest works in the choral repertoire.
