The Athens Choral Society will perform Dan Forrest’s the “The Breath of Life” and “Requiem” by Gabriel Faure on Thursday, May 2, at 7:30 pm in UGA’s Hodgson Hall at the Performing Arts Center on campus.

“The Breath of Life” ponders the beauty – yet brevity – of human life as portrayed in a single breath. Its profoundly moving texts (ranging from ancient to modern) trace the arc of life from the miracle and joy of birth to the bereavement of death, and the love that makes life worthwhile. Pairing beautifully with this work is Faure’s “Requiem,” extending the theme of life and death while focusing on eternal rest and consolation. 2024 is the 100th anniversary of Faure’s death.

The concert is free and no ticket is required.
