I really enjoyed the opening piece and most of the Mozart piece. The middle one was very painful to hear... I almost walked out prior to the intermissions because of that...

The music is eternal, of course, and the performers were competent and brought energy to their parts. I just wanted to note that GoldStar's tickets were well situated for excellent enjoyment, about halfway back from the stage on the orchestra...continued

The event was quite nice, although the performance itself was somewhat pedestrian. The acoustics were also borderline. However, you can't go wrong with Mozart's Requiem.

Few choral works are better known than Mozart’s Requiem. Paired with the dramatic imagery of Marjorie Merryman’s Jonah and the exciting Mendelssohn classic, this concert is not to be missed.
