Famed mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade will join Credo Choir, the Dallas Street Choir and the Richland College Chamber Singers in a performance of Street Requiem by Australian composers Kathleen McGuire, Andy Payne and Jonathon Welch.

Street Requiem is scored for mixed choir, soloists and chamber ensemble, aims to bring a sense of peace, remembrance and hope to communities struggling with homelessness and street violence. The work is neither secular nor religious, but is intended to be spiritual and includes English and African lyrics, as well as traditional Latin texts. While at times deeply moving, the work is optimistic and uplifting, and employs gospel, Celtic, neo-Romantic, neo-Baroque and contemporary compositional styles and instrumentation to reflect the multicultural and multi-faith traditions of modern city living.
