Choral Music of Dan Locklair to Be Performed by Cathedral Choral Society
of Washington DC at National Cathedral on March 4

Remembrance by American composer Dan Locklair will be heard as part of
American Mystics, a very special concert by the Cathedral Choral Society,
J. Reilly Lewis, conductor on Sunday, March 4 - 4:00 PM at the National
Cathedral, Massachusetts and Wisconsin Avenues, NW in Washington, D.C.
The composers' "...and call her blessed..." from his Windows of Comfort
(Organbook II) will also be presented.

Remembrance was written in 2006 for SATB chorus a cappella, organ and
optional trumpet and is based on text from the Biblical book of Matthew.

Other works on the program will include Randall Thompson's The Peaceable
Kingdom, based on the Biblical texts of Isaiah, and works by William
Trafka, Paul Halley, Frank Ferko, Edwin Fissinger, Gwyneth Walker, and
Eric Whitacre.

Special guests for the concert will be the acclaimed Anonymous 4 vocal
quartet.  There will be a pre-concert panel discussion with Dan Locklair,
Anonymous 4 and Robert Aubrey Davis.

Tickets for this concert are $65 to $20 and are available from the
Cathedral Choral Society office at (202) 537-5527 or online at
http://www.cathedralchoralsociety.org/.

The Cathedral Choral Society is the resident symphonic chorus of
Washington National Cathedral.  The 240-voice chorus is the oldest choral
group in Washington, having been founded in 1941 by Paul Callaway who
served as music director until 1984.  Since 1985, J.  Reilly Lewis has
conducted the Society in musical masterpieces from plainsong to contemporary
works.  Their four major concerts each season are often performed with
full symphony orchestra.  Since its founding, the Cathedral Choral Society
has presented numerous World Premieres, many of them commissioned by the
Society, and has maintained a tradition of showcasing both promising
young soloists and internationally known artists.  More about them at
http://www.cathedralchoralsociety.org/.

Internationally recognized composer Dan Locklair, a native of Charlotte,
NC, is Composer-in-Residence and Professor of Music at Wake Forest
University in Winston-Salem, NC.  His compositional output, influenced
by a wide variety of traditions, ranging from Medieval to modern music,
includes symphonic works, a ballet, an opera, and numerous solo, chamber,
vocal, organ and choral compositions.  His music has been performed
throughout Europe and North America by many major orchestras, choral
groups, chamber ensembles and soloists.  Several of these works have
received major awards, including the top award in the 1989 Barlow
International Competition for 'changing perceptions & Epitaph' and the
1996 American Guild of Organists Composer of the Year Award.  Among his
other honors are consecutive ASCAP Awards since 1981 and a Kennedy Center
Friedheim Award. His latest CDs, 'Dan Locklair Orchestral Music' (Albany
