Great Choir: Britten's War Requiem
THURSDAY, APRIL 6, 2017
7:30 PM – 9 PM, NAVE
Join us for this first performance of Britten’s War Requiem in the Cathedral since the 1990s under Kurt Masur. Over 350 choral singers, full symphony orchestra, organ and soloists gather will perform Benjamin Britten’s epic musical tribute to the perils of war. The traditional text of the Requiem Mass is interspersed with the poetry of Wilfred Owen, who himself perished in the Great War of a century ago. We mark that centennial with this performance.
Susanna Phillips, soprano
John Matthew Myers, tenor
Matthew Worth, baritone
This is the first of two performances. The second performance is on Friday, April 7, 2017.
