                                                                                The March 16th Concert
John Rutter's Requiem, performed by the Columbia Pro Cantare Chorus with soprano Laura Whittenberger, organist Donald Fries, harpist Jaqueline Pollauf, and a chamber orchestra was preceded by a group of shorter pieces, brilliantly performed by organist Donald Fries, soprano Laura Whittenberger, pianist Alison Gatwood, violinist Ronald Mutchnik, harpist Jaqueline Pollauf, and the CPC Chamber Singers. All were received with standing ovations in the extraordinary acoustical environment of the First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Ellicott City. Under the direction of Frances Motyca Dawson, the program included well known and unfamiliar pieces delivered by a group of highly talented singers and instrumentalists, and performed in a triumph over several obstacles that might have discouraged a less devoted group. We are particularly thankful to violinist Ronald Mutchnik for persevering over the severe pain consequent to a recent automobile accident and giving a brilliant performance. Photos of the concert are presented here.
