Verdi Requiem Concert Weekend

Giuseppe Verdi

Cathedral Choral Society
Dr. J. Reilly Lewis, conductor

It has been called the most operatic of all religious music. And no wonder; Verdi’s Requiem is as fired with passion, as overflowing with melodies as any of his operas. And with the same grand range of emotions, from its earth-shattering Dies Irae to the ethereal Agnus Dei, this is music that invades the heart and shakes the soul.

Join us at 2:30 pm for a free pre-concert discussion in Perry Auditorium (7th Floor of the Cathedral) with Paul Bachmann, a classical music specialist at SiriusXM.

Be sure to stop-by near the Rear Nave section before and after the concert.  Tickets will be available for the Lord and Taylor Benefit Bash on 11/10/09 ($5) plus find out about a special event taking place at the Barnes and Noble in Georgetown on 11/19/09.  We'll also have CDs of our latest recording available for purchase (Argento's Evensong: Of Love and Angels, $16).
