Malcolm Cochran’s Requiem
—the artist’s first sculptural installation to incorporate live music—will be presented this fall at Rock of Faith Baptist Church. The work offers a memorial to victims of genocide, massacres, and warfare, and to persons who have suffered from social and economic injustice and exploitation.
merges the mundane and discarded—used refrigerators repurposed as coffin-like sculptures—with live and recorded performances of ancient, classical, and contemporary a cappella songs without words performed by eight female vocalists, joined by members of the former church choir.
is free and open to the public on five consecutive Sundays this fall. Programs begin at 2:00 PM with doors opening at 1:30 PM, no registration is required.
