Southampton Philharmonic – Verdi’s Requiem

22nd Jun 2019 7.30PM - 22nd Jun 2019 Event Type: Concert

Few choral works have captured the public imagination in the way that Verdi's Requiem has. This monumental piece is unashamedly theatrical in style, with moments of great tenderness and simplicity juxtaposed with passages of the most powerful and thrilling intensity.  The soaring, lyrical melodies, which lie perfectly for the human voice; the scintillating orchestration, and the work's extraordinary dramatic and emotional depth – all contribute to the Requiem's status as one of the icons of Western choral music.

To communicate these dramatic extremes to full effect, Southampton Philharmonic Choir and the Southampton University Philharmonic Choir will perform without scores. It's an experience not to be missed!  Performing with the choirs will be the New London Sinfonia and four professional soloists, and the whole ensemble will be under the baton of the Phil's professional conductor, David Gibson.

Tickets £13 - £35 available online or from the Cathedral Box Office soon.
