Recital - Canticum Novum

Canticum Novum

This recital presents Johannes Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem with accompaniment for four hands piano arranged by Brahms himself. Canticum Novum, under the direction of Jonathan Laabs, is a choir dedicated to performing challenging choral music for the spiritual edification of its listeners and the encouragement of choristers of all ages to use their God-given talents at the highest possible level. Canticum Novum is unique in that its members, from WELS congregations across the Midwest and beyond, rehearse independently in the weeks and months leading up to the performances and meet as an ensemble for only a week out of the year at a retreat with intensive rehearsals, fellowship, and performance.

This recital is offered only Tuesday afternoon at 4:15 p.m. in the Carthage chapel. It is not necessary to sign up to attend. It will also be presented on Fri., June 21, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Marcus in Milwaukee and Sat., June 22, at 7:30 p.m. at Trinity in Waukesha. Visit for more information.
