For many, Verdi's monumental Requiem stands as the most powerful and expressive of all the great
Requiems.  For the opening concert of our 2008-2009 season, we are pleased to be joined by the
magnificent voices of The Heritage Signature Chorale for a memorable afternoon of choral splendor.
With full orchestra and a stunning cast of internationally renowned vocal soloists, this performance
promises to bring you all of the passion and drama of Verdi's beloved masterpiece.

The performance runs approximately 90 minutes, without intermission.
