Mozart’s Requiem Mass was one of the composer’s final compositions. Left incomplete, it was finished by family friend Edward Süssmayr. Mozart’s wife Constanze told stories of a commission received from a masked stranger, and that the feverish Mozart began to believe that he was writing this requiem for his own funeral. Those stories became the basis for the Oscar-winning film Amadeus.
Conducted by assistant conductor of the Blacksburg Master Chorale Larry Wyatt, the Requiem will feature four soloists and a group of community members singing the important choral parts. There will be seven rehearsals on Monday/Wednesday nights in July beginning on July 6. If you can read music and would like to join the community sing, please do!
Thursday Night Indoor Concerts are presented by Virginia Tech and the Town of Blacksburg as part of the 2022 Summer Arts Festival. All events are free. For more information, contact Richard Masters at email@example.com.
