The Last Message Received is a new work for chorus and orchestra inspired by the blog of the same name. In 2014, 16-year-old Emily Trunko created a space for people to anonymously share their final communications with loved ones. Thousands of posts later, composer Christopher Cerrone and librettist Stephanie Fleischmann collaborated to create a sometimes dramatic, sometimes intimate, and sometimes joyous tapestry of these poignant communications. Jointly commissioned by Northwestern University and the Yale University Symphony Orchestra and Glee Club, The Last Message Received receives its world premiere in a program that also includes the full-orchestra version of the great 20th-century Requiem of Maurice Duruflé.

Maurice Duruflé, Requiem, Op. 9
Christopher Cerrone, The Last Message Received (world premiere)
