Their last record, Stereotypes, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Classical Crossover Chart and #4 on the Billboard R&B Chart.

Mozart’s Requiem

Start Date 29 Mar 2019
Category: The Gaillard Center
Author: Steve Vail

Two performances: March 29 @ 7:30 pm and March 30 @ 7:30 pm

The CSO Chorus joins the Charleston Symphony for a monumental rendition of Mozart’s Requiem, the final composition of Mozart’s life, and one of the most famous works ever written. Requiem was commissioned by an anonymous patron who attempted to keep his identity secret because he was planning to pass Mozart’s work off as his own. Mozart worked on the piece up until the day of his death—even rehearsing various choral parts with friends while in bed only hours before he died.
