Kirkland Performance Center
Kirkland Choral Society and Philharmonia Northwest join forces to present Verdi’s monumental masterpiece – Messa da Requiem.
Considered one of the most dramatic works for the concert hall, Verdi’s Requiem is one of the top five picks for all-time great choral orchestral works. Verdi wrote this masterpiece in his later years, when — financially independent because of his operas -- he only worked on projects about which he was deeply passionate. As a result, the Requiem carries a spiritual and emotional power, as well as a deep personal meaning that is unmatched by any of Verdi's other works. This is the creation of a musical genius at the highest peak of his artistic and creative brilliance.
In our presentation, you’ll experience the full power of Verdi's Requiem, including a magical passage where eight trumpets call all to answer before the throne of God.
You won’t want to miss this: outstanding soloists, a full orchestra, and our symphonic choir of over 100 singers in the Northwest’s premier concert setting. Come be part of it!
Dr. Glenn Gregg, conductor
Kim Giordano, Soprano
Melissa Plagemann, Mezzo-Soprano
Tim Janecke, Tenor
Clayton Brainerd, Bass-Baritone

Benaroya Hall, Seattle
Barnett & Bernstein
Carol Barnett's popular Bluegrass Mass will be accompanied by a bluegrass band, and may have you wanting to dance in the aisles!
Then, in honor of Leonard Bernstein's birth centennial, you'll hear the complete set of choruses from his beloved and celebrated Candide.
And both of those fun, wonderful musical experiences may be eclipsed by the actual presence of Carol Barnett, highlighted by the world premiere of her piece commissioned by KCS for this event. She is one of the top living U.S. composers, and her new 8-minute piece for full choir provides you with the chance to be the first to experience this new "music for the ages."
