QED Vocal Ensemble, an innovative choir comprised of some of Buffalo’s finest solo and choral singers will present In Memoriam on Saturday, October 27, 2 PM at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 724 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo, NY.
The program, In Memoriam, has been designed as a modern day requiem to honor family and friends who have passed away. The audience will have the opportunity to find solace in a combination of classic and modern masterpieces by Tavener, Lassus, Mallonée, Bach, Parry, Ginastera, and more.
Michael Manganiello, founder and baritone, says that they chose the name QED “because we feel well-informed performances are demonstrative of the power of word and music, the beauty of artistic communication, and the necessity of combining scholarship and art to create meaningful and memorable experiences for our audiences.” QED is an abbreviation for the Latin phrase quod erat demonstrandummeaning “that which was to be demonstrated.”
“We are honored to have QED Vocal Ensemble in residence at Westminster and invite all to enjoy the musical innovations from this inspiring choral group,” says Garrett Martin, Organist and Choirmaster at Westminster Presbyterian Church.
Members of the group have been singing together for nearly a decade, beginning as students at the Fredonia School of Music. Throughout that time, the singers have continued to evolve their talents – both as solo and ensemble singers – performing throughout the country and around the world.
This concert is free and open to the public with donations gratefully accepted to benefit the Westminster Friends of Music. For more information, call 716-884-9437 or visit www.wpcbuffalo.org.
