Originally slated for April 2020, the SLO Master Chorale was thrilled to finally present “The French Connection” on November 20, 2022, featuring more than 100 voices accompanied by a full symphony orchestra performing the Requiem by Gabriel Fauré and the Gloria by Francis Poulenc. In addition, Fauré’s well-known Pavane separated the two larger works. Guest soloists were Amy Goymerac, soprano, and Ben Kazez, baritone.
