“This particular piece by Fauré is a more intimate work and has perhaps one of the most famous soprano arias, the really gorgeous and flowing ‘Pie Jesu,’ which is a real highlight of the piece,” says Vice President for Artistic Planning Jeremy Rothman.
He also says it’s a really special way to come hear the Philadelphia Orchestra in a new experience.
“The concert is going to open with some brass fanfares; you’re going to get a chance to hear the Fred J. Cooper Memorial Organ in a solo work. You’re going to hear the Philadelphia Singers featured in a beautiful a cappella work. You’re then going hear a really stunning piece by Villa- Lobos…” he says.
