Employee Success–Dr. Michael Crawford, Richland College associate dean of performing arts/choral director, and Jonathan Palant, Richland College adjunct music faculty and founder and conductor of the Credo Choir and Dallas Street Choir, successfully arranged for the Richland College Chamber Singers to perform with famed mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade, the Credo Choir, and the Dallas Street Choir in a performance of Street Requiem on January 25 at the Dallas City Performance Hall.  Street Requiem is a work scored for mixed choir, soloists, and chamber ensemble to bring a sense of peace, remembrance, and hope to communities struggling with homelessness and street violence, and will mark the first concert appearance of the Dallas Street Choir, open to any member of the homeless street community.
