The Defiant Requiem with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra
This is the Verdi Requiem, as written, with stunning multi-media art, commemorating the 16 performances of the Requiem by the prisoners of the Terezin concentration camp in WWII. These three performances, in early May of this year, were a powerful experience for performers and audience members alike. The CCD is profoundly grateful to Maestro Murry Sidlin, the DSO and world-class soloists, and our guest choristers for sharing their musical gifts with us in these monumental, deeply meaningful concerts that reached as many as 20,000 audience members, both in-house and online worldwide.
All of us in the Community Chorus of Detroit thank you – our supporters – for all you do to help us to continue “Singing in the Heart of Detroit!”
