Join the Richmond Symphony Chorus as they pay homage to founder James Erb. Most well-known for his stirring arrangement of Shenandoah, Erb also composed and arranged several other works, including Amazing Grace, Now is the Cool of the Day, and the Colorado Trail.  We will perform several of these lesser-known, but equally beautiful selections, and pair them with music of Orlando Lassus, curated and edited by Dr. Erb, and three movements from the Brahms’ Requiem, the final full work that Erb prepared with the Richmond Symphony Chorus.
