Thomasville Singers present music by John Rutter

At 4 p.m. Sunday, March 25, Arts for the Community at Thomas University (ACTU) will present John Rutter’s “Requiem” featuring the Thomasville Singers with chamber orchestra and soloist Stephanie Miles Holladay under the direction of Nicole Davis. The concert will be held in the sanctuary of Thomasville First United Methodist Church, located at 425 N. Broad St.

“This performance will feature Rutter's ‘Requiem,’ which is a perfect way to start Holy Week,” said Nicole Davis, director of the Thomasville Singers. “We are also happy to present three other anthems by Rutter on the program and are thrilled to have Stephanie Holladay joining us.”

Holladay is a graduate student in opera performance and a teaching assistant at the College of Music at Florida State University.  Originally from Durant, Oklahoma, Holladay completed her undergraduate degrees at The University of Southern Mississippi, where she earned Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Music Education degrees. Her most recent roles are Morgana from “Alcina,” Paquette from “Candide,” Mary Poppins from “Mary Poppins,” Zerlina from “Don Giovanni,” and Despina from “Cosi fan tutte.”

In reflecting on his composition, John Rutter wrote, “I wanted to write intimate rather than grandiose, contemplative and lyric rather than dramatic, and ultimately moving towards light rather than darkness – the ‘lux aeterna’ of the closing text.”

“The performance is really coming together, and the chamber choir and orchestra are going to be great,” stated ACTU coordinator and Thomas University professor of music Karl Barton. “I hope that everyone can come out to enjoy the music.” 

There is a suggested donation of $10. For additional information, call 229-227-6964 or email
