On Sun., Oct. 7 at 7 p.m., the Pfeiffer University Concert Choir will present a memorial concert in Henry Pfeiffer Chapel to honor the life of Dr. David Kirby, Pfeiffer's director of instrumental music from 2005-2012. Dr. Kirby passed away suddenly in June.
The Concert Choir, along with select Pfeiffer faculty, staff and alumni soloists and instrumentalists, will perform John Rutter's Requiem, a piece composed as a service for the living, offering comfort to those remembering one who is lost.
â€œThe enduring impression David left on the students, faculty and staff of Pfeiffer University overall and Department of Music in particular is remarkably palpable,â€ said Joseph Judge, assistant professor of music and director of choral activities. â€œOur musical tribute honors his many contributions to all our lives.â€
