The First Presbyterian Church of Dearborn with the First United Methodist Church of Dearborn will be presenting Requiem by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart April 5-6.

The churches are inviting people to hear “this glorious and reflective work” for the Lenten season at 6 p.m. Saturday in the Methodist church on 22124 Garrison St., or at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Presbyterian church on 600 N. Brady St. Performing the concert with a 23-player orchestra will be a choir of 50 singers, coming from First Presbyterian or First United Methodist (or performing as guests).

Though it is the first time that the two churches have collaborated in presenting Requiem, and First Presbyterian Church of Dearborn office coordinator Jim Barber said he has not heard the choirs in rehearsal, “In the past, I've heard the concerts our church has put on, and they've been very, very good.”

The featured soloists for the performance of Requiem will be soprano Sylvia LaPtratt, alto Brianne Boyd, tenor Luke Capizzo, and baritone Marcus LaPratt. The suggested donation for attending the concert is $10 per-person (or $20 per-family).
