June 24th, 7 pm CST
/kor/ productions is delighted to announce the first production in its hybrid 2021-22 season, PRIDE. This digital event features world premieres of new works by contemporary classical composer, Felix Jarrar, streaming straight to our audiences’ homescreens this June 24th.
With the decimating impact of Covid-19 on the entertainment industry, Jarrar emerges from quarantine with an entirely new musical experience. In PRIDE, Jarrar begins experimenting with the darker side of musicality. His song cycles hover between plush, expanding vocal lines and the shadowy, somber undertones the singers express. PRIDE features less outright humor and more vulnerability, as well as a rare insight into the composer’s inner musings. Isolation, longing for a partner’s presence and the sheer joy of reuniting are interspersed with tender, intimate reflections of love... and how it changes those who encounter it.

December 3, 7:30 pm @ Queen of the Apostles Church
/kor/ productions has teamed with Northeastern Illinois University, Queen of the Apostles Church to present the Brahms requiem, a requiem for those who are left behind.
In the aftermath of 2020, we felt it was a fitting way to honor those who left us, and those of us still picking up the pieces. The Brahms Requiem, also known as Ein Deutsches Requiem, will feature a chamber orchestra, chorus, and two featured soloists.
Join us Friday, December 3rd at Queen of the Apostles Church at 7:30 pm for the Brahms Requiem. A reception is scheduled to follow in the basement of the church.
