'Requiem’ effort is music to the ears

On behalf of Pier One Theatre, and the nearly 180 participants of last month’s Brahms Requiem, I want to publicly thank the many individuals and organizations that supported this wonderful community endeavor. To list them all here would be outside of the scope of such a letter. Nevertheless, we feel compelled to thank A Music Education Fund in Memory of Renda Horn, and the David and Mary Schroer Fund — both managed by the Homer Foundation, for their generous and needed financial support. We are also grateful to: John Luzzadder Graphic Design for the beautiful program; Christ Lutheran Church of Soldotna, Ninilchik Fairgrounds, and Homer High School for rehearsal space; and The Homer Bookstore, and River City Books for once again providing a wonderful community service as ticket outlets. On a personal note, I am particularly grateful for the immeasurable and tireless efforts of Laura and Peter Norton, JulieAnn Smith, Maria Allison, Kyle Schneider, and Lance and Barbara Petersen. This was a very meaningful project for me personally, and it simply would not have possible without the incredible efforts of the people mentioned above, the sacrifice of time and energy by all the participants (members of the Kenai Peninsula Orchestra, the Kenai Peninsula Community Chorus, and the Homer High School Concert Choir), and the work of many, many volunteers. Thank you all.
