Mozart Requiem

Category / Venue: Charleston Gaillard Center
Date and Time: 16 Jan 2018 7:30 PM

Experience Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s ethereal and dramatic masterpiece Requiem Mass K. 626. Commissioned by a secret messenger, this work is shrouded in mystery from the very beginning and highlights the genius of Mozart’s compositional style for solo quartet, mixed choir, and full orchestra. Mozart’s inexplicable and sudden death left the Requiem Mass incomplete. This performance version was completed by Franz Süssmayr at the request of Mozart’s wife, Constanze.
The combined talents of the Cane Bay Cobra Chorale, School of the Arts Orchestra and Singers, Wando Chamber Choir and other Tri-County musicians
will present this stunning masterwork by Mozart.
