Davies Symphony Hall is an appropriately majestic backdrop for the San Francisco Choral Society's performance of Brahms' monumental A German Requiem.

In doing so, he transformed a potentially conventional piece of church music into what would later become the second most performed choral work after Handel's Messiah. Now soloists Marnie Breckenridge (soprano) and Eugene Brancoveanu (bass) and the California Chamber Symphony will join SF Choral in bringing this masterful Requiem back to life. Learn More
