The Cry: A Requiem for the Lost Child

Saturday, October 21, 2023 at 7:00 PM

First Presbyterian Church, 716 College Avenue, Racine, WI 53403

Pre-Concert Events Included with Admission:

5:45 – 6:30PM Prairie School Art Chair Vicki Schmitz and CAS Associate Conductor Pat Badger will offer a hands-on session – Ukraine Children’s Art: The Art of Possibility In Times of Conflict.

6:00 – 6:30PM Dr. John Brug, Scholar, Editor, Archaeologist, and Pastor, will speak about Compassion for Children; Dr. Brug has spent time in Ukraine.

British Contemporary composer Adrian Snell created The Cry as an act of remembrance for those affected by the loss of life or childhood due to violence. With author Murray Watts, Snell has musically woven the authentic words of children, who have suffered war, conflict, and ethnic cleansing, within the Requiem structure. The Choral Arts Society (CAS) will offer this work in honor of and in solidarity with the civilian victims of the war in Ukraine. The program will be enhanced by the artwork of Ukrainian children impacted by the war who were invited to paint at hospitals, orphanages, and art studios in Lviv by art therapists Nataliia and Yustyna Pavliuk. In January 2023, these works were exhibited at the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art in Chicago. American solo violinist Rebecca Engstrom—a Wisconsin native who collaborated on the composition and the world premiere—will perform with the CAS.
