60 Minutes & It's Free: REQUIEM at St. Luke's on March 22

Remember when I used to do "30 Minutes & It's Free" -- well, when I did it twice, for the IMA and for the ISM? WELL! It's back, and this one is not altruistic and culture-vulturey; rather, it's shameless self-promotion. And it's 60 minutes, not 30. Ready? Go!

On Sunday, March 22, at 4:00pm, St. Luke's Chancel Choir, Orchestra, and Whatnot will present one of the first performances of a piece called Requiem, composed by Mack Wilberg, the music director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. You should totally come.

Requiem is sung in Latin and English, but don't freak out if you're not fluent in Latin any more. Or English, for that matter. The music will transport you to another place. It's almost other-worldly in sound, and, really, what the hell else are you going to be doing on a Sunday afternoon? You don't have to get dressed up, the concert is free, and it's very cool. Be there or be square, man.

The choir retreat to prepare for this concert is this weekend, so I'll probably have more to share after that. I'll make sure you know a little bit more about the composition and what to expect at the concert. Stay tuned!

Here are the details:
: 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 22, 2009 in the year of our Lord
WHERE: St. Luke's Church, 100 W. 86th Street, Indianapolis
HOW MUCH: $0, though a freewill offering will be accepted
WHY: Because your spirit needs a little music; it's good for you
