JoAnn Falletta, conductor
Virginia Symphony Orchestra Chorus
Robert Shoup, chorusmaster
In a season filled with dramatic music, JoAnn Falletta conducts Verdi’s powerful Requiem. Written as a Requiem Mass in memory of Italian poet Alessandro Manzoni, the piece has become an audience favorite as a richly orchestral masterwork punctuated by breathless drama and poignant solo work. Four outstanding singers collaborate with the VSO Chorus for these performances—an inspiring concert in another thrilling season!
