WWU Concert Choir and Symphony Orchestra Present Mozartís Requiem


Western Washington Universityís acclaimed Concert Choir and Symphony Orchestra join together to present W. A. Mozartís final masterpiece, the Requiem in D minor, K. 626. The 35-year-old Mozart composed much of this work on his deathbed late in 1791. He was assisted by a small circle of devoted friends and students, who took on the task of completing the Requiem following Mozartís passing. Since then it has become among the most celebrated works in the choral-orchestral literature. Mozartís Requiem is not only one of the great monuments of the Classical era, but also a staggering demonstration of its creatorís genius: irrepressible even in his darkest hour.
