TO DECLARE SATURDAY, APRIL 9, 1994, AS "GREENVILLE CHORALE DAY" IN SOUTH CAROLINA IN HONOR OF THE ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY-FIVE SINGERS OF THE GREENVILLE CHORALE AND THEIR CONDUCTOR, DR. BINGHAM L. VICK, JR., WHO WILL PERFORM BENJAMIN BRITTEN'S WAR REQUIEM, WHICH IS ITS PREMIER PERFORMANCE IN SOUTH CAROLINA.
Whereas, 1994 marks the fiftieth anniversary of D-Day, the pivotal action which brought World War II to a close; and
Whereas, the United States of America has been well served by brave and valiant men and women in defense of our nation and in pursuit of peace on earth; and
Whereas, Benjamin Britten composed the War Requiem as a monument to peace and in celebration of the rebuilding of St. Michael's Cathedral in Coventry, England, which was destroyed during World War II; and
Whereas, the Greenville Chorale and Orchestra through its performance wishes to express appreciation during this fiftieth anniversary year to all who have fought for our country and also wishes to express, as did Mr. Britten, the desire that peace replace conflict; and
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, would like to publicly recognize and commend the Greenville Chorale, its conductor, and each of its members on the occasion of what will surely be a very memorable performance. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly hereby declare Saturday, April 9, 1994, as "Greenville Chorale Day" in South Carolina in honor of the one hundred seventy-five singers of the Greenville Chorale and their conductor, Dr. Bingham L. Vick, Jr., who will perform Benjamin Britten's War Requiem, which is its premier performance in South Carolina.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Dr. Bingham L. Vick, Jr., musical director and conductor of the Greenville Chorale.
