Welcome Festival Scheduled for Nov. 8th-12th

Welcome to the Requiem Choral Festival website! Here you can learn more about the festival, register to sing, or find out about sponsorship opportunities.

The Requiem Choral Festival is held annually in Raleigh, NC during the month of November. Each year we present a choral-orchestral Requiem. This year our festival will run from November 8th-November 12th with intensive rehearsals culminating in a performance with orchestra. Singers are needed so register today! To read more about what a requiem is, visit our "about" page.

Two weeks of intensive rehearsals mean the festival is ideal for singers who participate in their local church choir or cannot commit to long-term rehearsal schedules due to travel or other considerations. We hope you will join us! This year, our rehearsals are scheduled for the first two weeks of November. To see our full rehearsal schedule, visit our RCF2021 page.

2021 is the inaugural year for the Requiem Choral Festival. We are confident that the music will draw singers and an enthusiastic audience and make our first performance a smashing success! You can be a part of this project as a singer, sponsor, or simply an audience member.

Prayer to St. Joseph for a Happy Death

O Blessed Joseph, you gave your last breath in the loving embrace of Jesus and Mary. When the seal of death shall close my life, come with Jesus and Mary to aid me. Obtain for me this solace for that hour - to die with their holy arms around me. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I commend my soul, living and dying, into your sacred arms. Amen.
