A Requiem, at its core, is a prayer for rest—traditionally performed in memory of the deceased. The five movements of Dan Forrest's Requiem for the Living, (2013), however, form a narrative just as much for the living, and their own struggle with pain and sorrow, as for the dead. The Austin Symphony Orchestra will join forces with its own chorus for this contemporary reflection on the Requiem text. In reflection and triumph, Finnish composer Jean Sibelius manifests the changing of the season with his powerfully melodic “In Springtime”. And the ASO is proud to feature its Principal Oboist, Holly Dalager, in a rarely heard and delightful work by German composer Ludwig Lebrun.

He was most recently featured as soloist in in June 2017 performing Bloch's Schelomo.
