LIMA — The Lima Symphony Orchestra concludes its 2015-16 season at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Veterans Memorial Civic Center with “Requiem and Reflections.”

“It is incredible how fast it goes. Sad to see the season end,” said Elizabeth Brown, executive director of the Lima Symphony Orchestra.

The “Requiem and Reflections” concert features two vocal soloists, soprano Sharon Harms and baritone Alan Dunbar, as well as the Lima Symphony Chorus and Ohio Northern University chorus.

“There will be more than 150 vocalists on the stage with 80 musicians,” Brown said. “This is a beautiful, uplifting concert. Requiem is a Catholic funeral mass. Gabriel Faure composed this in a way no one else has before. Filled with light, no judgment or day of wrath. Joyful celebration of life and hopeful look of what is next.”

The orchestra will also perform Claude Debussy’s “La Mer,” an impressionist piece portraying both the power and playfulness of the sea. “La Mer” describes the essence of the sea: always the same yet ever changing, and is the perfect parallel between the motion of life and death itself.

“This will be a popular concert, no doubt. Choral concerts are always popular. People enjoy them. This is a great opportunity for parents to see the Ohio Northern University choir. I am sure this will be a very well-attended concert,” Brown said.
