Rachel Fuller is a composer and pianist whose work draws on her classically trained
background and love of orchestral music. She achieved international recognition as the
orchestrator of her husband Pete Townshend’s Quadrophenia, which has toured worldwide to
great critical acclaim. As a passionate animal lover, She was inspired to compose Animal
Requiem after losing six dogs to old age over a span of five years. Animal Requiem celebrates,
remembers and honors all the animals who have been loved and lost and was created to help
raise awareness for the continued suffering of animals affected by cruelty, negligence and
abuse. It is also meant to honor every person who is passionate about animal welfare, who
believes in a world where animals are treated with kindness and compassion, and that each and
every life is a valuable one. Animal Requiem also features LA’s Tonality Choir, The Hollywood
Studio Orchestra, Bruce Sledge (tenor), Caroline McKenzie (soprano) and special guests Pete
Townshend, Jewel and Jane Lynch (narrator). The performance also includes Saint-Saën’s
Carnival of the Animals.
