Dan Forrest, the composer of Requiem for the Living, visited Hickory Choral Society on Monday May 16th. HCS commissioned Dan Forrest to write Ubi Caritas, which will premiere this Sunday May 22, 2022 in concert. Ubi Caritas is in honor of J. Don Coleman and his many years of service founding and directing Hickory Choral Society.
He posted on Facebook the below photo, saying “10 years ago, I began writing Requiem for the Living for Hickory Choral Society. Sunday, they premiere my new Ubi Caritas! Great to catch up and rehearse with them tonight!”
He shared more thoughts with us in our recent newsletter. Read all about that here!
