BRITTEN: WAR REQUIEM
Sunday, November 3 at 7:30 PM
Kennedy Center Concert Hall
Jessica Muirhead, soprano
Vale Rideout, tenor
Christopher Burchett, baritone
with the Children's Chorus of Washington
Joan Gregoryk, Music Director
The Washington Chorus opens its 53rd season by celebrating the 100th ANNIVERSARY of the birth of Benjamin Britten with his monumental War Requiem. With the power of two orchestras, two choruses, and a trio of soloists, the epic War Requiem became an instant classic when it premiered in 1962 at the rebuilt Coventry Cathedral. What better way to honor the Britten centenary than with a performance of one of Western music's foremost masterpieces!
This performance will be presented without an intermission.
The Washington Chorus' recording of the War Requiem won a GRAMMY® for Best Choral Performance in 2000. Order online or call TWC at 202.342.6221. Subscribers receive a 10% discount.
