Columbia County Choral Society will perform Dan Forrest’s critically acclaimed Requiem for the Living. Dan Forrest is a critically acclaimed composer of choral, orchestral, instrumental, and wind band works. His music, in print with numerous publishers, has sold millions of copies, and has become well established in the repertoire of choirs around the world.

Dr. Jay B. Aiken, Artistic Director, selected this piece for numerous reasons. It is a favorite among those who sing and hear it. After the all-Baroque concert in November, Dr. Aiken wanted to present to the community that CCCS is a diverse organization. Also included in this concert is the works of Palestrina, Mozart, Ives, Redford, and the conductor. Dr. Aiken is an accomplished composer and his gospel-style Ascension Medley is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
