ORONO The University of Maine School of Performing Arts' presentation of 'Ein deutsches Requiem' by Johannes Brahms has been rescheduled for 7:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 20, in the 900-seat Hampden Academy Performing Arts Center in Hampden.

Retiring Professor Ludlow Hallman will conduct the Oratorio Society Concert, which is dedicated to the memory of those killed during the December 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Jan. 20 was chosen as the new concert date in tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. Kelly Scheetz, soprano, and Justin Zang, baritone, will be soloists.

Brahms' Opus 45 is a prayer for the souls of the departed. 'Brahms' text addresses those who are left behind, with words of comfort and consolation,' Hallman says. 'It is a very personal and heartfelt master work. He envisioned it as a work for all of humanity, transcending specific religious belief or nationality.'

Hallman has conducted the University Orchestra, an auditioned group of 45 musicians and the Oratorio Society, a mixed choral ensemble of community members and university students. He has also directed the Opera Workshop, chaired UMaine's Music Department and served as resident director of the New England Universities in Salzburg program which was the immersion training for students of German. In addition, he has conducted and directed music for multiple operas and musical comedies and served as assistant conductor of the Bangor Symphony Orchestra.

Admission is $10, free with a student MaineCard. For tickets or disability accommodations, call (207) 581-1755. Tickets will also be available at the door prior to the performance.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However imagine if you added some great pictures or
    videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with
    pics and clips, this site could definitely be one of the best in its field.
    Wonderful blog!

    An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment.

    I believe that you need to publish more about this
    issue, it might not be a taboo matter but typically people don't speak
    about such issues. To the next! Cheers!!

    Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
