Verdi's Requiem perf. by the Palisades Symphony

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDFFHaz9GsY

The Palisades Symphony presents Verdi's choral masterpiece, Messa de Requiem, featuring the Brentwood-Palisades Chorale. Sometimes called an opera disguised as sacred music, the Requiem will leave you breathless as it cries out for eternal rest, forgiveness and redemption. It's Ok to come by yourself--you won't be by yourself for long!

Requiem is a conductor's dream come true. Requiem offers the drama of opera and the thrill of wonderful symphonic writing combined with stellar, virtuosic solo moments. Written to honor the great Italian writer Manzoni, it's a monumental piece with all the dramatic power and expressive lyricism of Verdi’s operas and one of music's grandest expressions of the human experience.

The Palisades Symphony is a community orchestra  and was founded in 1966 by director Joel B. Lish. LAFC Member Geoffrey Maingart is the concertmaster.

    Wonderful performance, especially by the soloists. I was not able to find any other meet-up members.

    Brilliant. Since the drive took much less time than I thought it would, I got there at about 6:30, so I didn't check in with the host but I had a great seat.

    I have been off work for the last 3 months with a back injury. If there is someone who could help with the sign, I could do it for awhile. I would hate to see this event cancelled.

      I am just seeing this message. I turned around at Sunset Bl and came home because I was having car trouble. I live in Sherman Oaks so I was worried about getting stuck too far from home. I was so looking forward to this!
