Masterworks concert to feature ‘Mozart’s Requiem’

in

Louisiana Tech University’s Fall Choral Concert is timely considering it features Mozart’s Requiem.
“We are right here
at All Saints’ Day and all Souls’ Day,” said Sean Teets, director of choral activities.
“Requiem means granting eternal peace (rest). Hopefully it will bring peace to those who have lost someone this year.”
Additionally, for those not in mourning, the concert may have a familiar sound.

I can’t remember ever having a bad teacher — at least not before college. Sure, there were ones that I did not particularly care for, such as my third-grade teacher, who yelled a lot and punished children by making them sit up on their knees on the hard floor. Then there was my fourth-grade teacher, who declared I could not leave the lunchroom until I had sampled everything on my plate.
