Mozart’s Requiem opens Okanagan Symphony season

After their triumph with Beethoven in 2010, the Okanagan Symphony Chorus will once again join the orchestra for Mozart’s Requiem Mass.

After their triumph with Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in 2010, the Okanagan Symphony Chorus will once again join the orchestra for Mozart’s Requiem Mass.

Written at the height of his creative power, the Requiem was Mozart’s last work. It is considered one of the most inspirational pieces of the classical repertoire.

A stellar vocal quartet, all from B.C., including Melina Moore, soprano; Dana Luccock, mezzo soprano; Isaiah Bell, tenor; and Alan Corbishley, baritone will join the orchestra to commemorate Remembrance Day with this expressive composition.

The concert program opens with the lyrical, melancholy composition Such Sweet Sorrow by Canadian composer John Estacio.

Starting an hour before the concert, conductor Rosemary Thomson  will give a pre-concert talk, providing insights about the music, the composers and the guest artists.

In Penticton, the OSO will be performing on Nov. 12 at 7:30 p.m. in Cleland Theatre. Tickets are available from the Penticton & Wine Country Visitors’ Centre.
