Great Choir: Britten's War Requiem

FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 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.

SOLOISTS
Susanna Phillips, soprano
John Matthew Myers, tenor
Matthew Worth, baritone

This is the second of two performances. The first performance is on Thursday, April 6, 2017.
