depending on events around civic center, traffic and parking can be really difficult, so give yourself plenty of time to find parking and bring some cash, because if there is only limited parking all garages will accept cash only!

Great chorus. Tenor was a bit lacking in projection, but the other three lead singers were excellent. Fantastic piece.

A truly world class performance! The soloists, the orchestra and the chorus were all in top form. Bravo!

More Information


Verdi’s Requiem, for orchestra, four soloists, and double choir, is a colossal setting of the Catholic mass. Now a standard of the choral repertoire, and operatic in its scale and grandeur, it may never have existed if not for the ill-fated collaboration by several Italian composers to honor the life of Rossini with a requiem in his honor. Verdi expanded his contribution to this project into the emotional and revered work we know today.
