An estimated 300 parish and community members enjoyed a
start to Holy Week on April 13 with a performance of the Niles Metropolitan
Chorus and Musica Lumina Chamber Orchestra at St. John Brebeuf, Niles.
Requiems concert is part of a tradition of presenting these types of musical
programs on Palm Sunday, according to Music Director Marek Rachelski.
"We even had a special French organ for the occasion which was
installed just a week beforehand," he said. "Blended with the chorus
and musicians, its gorgeous sound enveloped the audience which was moved both
spiritually and emotionally."
