Our Winter Concert is a reflection on over two years of pain, suffering and loss due to Covid, as well as on the heroic efforts of the many people who are fighting to overcome this pandemic. The concert opens with the world premier of Lamentations, a cantata in four movements composed by our Music Director and Conductor Thomas W. Jones while in quarantine, which speaks to the desolation and sadness following the fall of Jerusalem in the 6th century BC—a stark parallel to the emptiness of our cities, and our periodic feelings of helplessness and despair during lockdown 2019 and 2020. This will be followed by Mozart's Requiem, a memorial to all who have died during the pandemic as well as to their families and friends who were unable to visit, console, care for or even bury their loved ones.  The conclusion of the concert, a message of hope and triumph, is from the resurrection section of Handel's Messiah when "the trumpets shall sound and death is swallowed up in victory, thanks be to God—AMEN!"
