MOZART
Requiem & Revelations

Hear Mozart’s Requiem with fresh ears in a revelatory program. Brett Weymark interweaves the music of this deathbed masterpiece with choral gems – from the heart-warmingly familiar to the intriguingly novel. It’s a “love letter” to Mozart that highlights the drama, the anguish and the beauty of this legendary music.
