You don’t often hear about world premiere choral events happening in Rhode Island, but Providence’s Collegium Ancora has done just that by commissioning Michael Bussewitz-Quarm’s Mass for the Unarmed Child. Written in the wake of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shootings, the requiem is written for choir, piano, and rap soloist. This section is composed by Adrian Dunn, composer of the MacArthur grant winning Hopera: A Hip Hop Opera. Performed under the direction of Vince Edwards, this concert will also include French composer Maurice Duruflé’s 1947 Requiem.
