On Sunday, April 7, 2019 the WPC Chancel Choir and Chamber Orchestra will present Mozart’s Requiem in D minor, K. 626, featuring soloists Christina Borgioli, Nandani Maria Sinha, Scott Noonan and Matthew Lewis under the direction of Dan Redfeld. The edition chosen for this concert is the 1980’s reconstruction by Richard Maunder, which retains Mozart’s original orchestration while eliminating the contributions by Franz Süssmayr and creating new movements based on materials discovered in the 1960s. This is a rare event to hear this version stateside. The Maunder edition of the Requiem was made popular by the Christopher Hogwood and the Academy of Ancient Music recording in the 1980’s.
We need your support to offer our community excellent sacred classical music. In a time when the arts are being cut from school and city budgets, part of our church’s call is to ensure that sacred classical repertoire will be passed to the next generation. In challenging economic times it is even more important that advocates for the sacred arts remain strong! Please become a friend and supporter of the Music at Westwood program at WPC.

Last June, Dan Redfeld joined us as our Interim Director of Music. Over seven months, Dan and the Chancel Choir have offered a broad array of exquisite sacred music, culminating in our transcendent Advent and Christmas seasons. With the overwhelming support of our Chancel Choir, the Session is delighted to announce that Dan has accepted the invitation to serve as our Director of Music, thus removing the term "Interim" from his title. We look forward to all that is to come as Dan leads our choir in WPC's long-standing commitment to traditional sacred music, done with excellence, to the glory of God. We officially welcome Dan and his wife, Elizabeth Hedman, to the WPC family!
