Requiem in Water

Earl V. Moore Building

100 years ago, in July of 1915, the S.S. Eastland rolled over in the Chicago River, trapping and killing 844 people, mostly working class immigrants and their children. Requiem in Water is an experimental choral work by the Suburban Piano Quartet that serves both to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the event and reflect upon loss, tragedy, and what it means to bear witness to disaster – both historical and contemporary. The piece features current SMTD students and alumni.
