VERDI Messa da requiem


Celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the world-renowned Colorado Symphony Chorus with Music Director Brett Mitchell, along with the chorus’ founder and director Duain Wolfe, for a renewal of Verdi’s monumental Requiem. The chorus first performed this legendary work during their debut on October 25, 1984 at Boettcher Concert Hall. Nearly 35 years to the day, they breathe new life into Verdi’s compassionate projection of essential human emotions — piety, agitation, and hope. A personal, reverent, and poignant tribute to Italian novelist Alessandro Manzoni, Verdi’s transcendent Requiem remains one of the most cherished choral works of all time.
