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.


The 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."
