Bernstein's Chichester Psalms is one of the 20th century's most celebrated choral masterpieces. Sung in Hebrew, they express joyful, impassioned, and universal themes of brotherhood and gratitude.
Mozart's Requiem Mass, one of the most profoundly moving experiences in all of western art, was the last piece of music that Mozart struggled to complete before his tragically early death at the age of 35. Working under mysterious conditions, (he was commissioned through an anonymous source who hoped to claim the work as his own), Mozart believed that he was writing the piece for himself. Featuring vocal soloists from the Metropolitan Opera and the Cabrillo Symphonic Chorus, we will conclude our season on a note of uplift and renewal.
