    Following this work is Mozart’s Laudate Dominum, K. 339, sung by local soprano Jūratė Švedaitė. Švedaitė, a graduate of the Lithuanian Academy of Music who teaches at Connecticut College, and will also sing during one of the movements presented from Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem, Op. 48. The Requiem will unite the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Chorus and the orchestra, under the direction of the ECSC’s new Music Director, Daniel McDavitt.
