For our season finale, we bring you one of the most powerful expressions of the 19th Century, “Verdi’s Requiem Mass.” Collaborating with the Symphony will be nearly 200 voices from the Hershey Symphony Festival Chorus, the Dickinson College Chorus, The Elizabethtown College Chorus and guest soloists. Verdi combines operatic intensity with the searching questions of man’s place in the scheme of eternity, in one of the most soul-rattling pieces for orchestra and voices ever written. No one who experiences the Requiem ever looks at the world, or the afterlife, the same way again. From the building-shaking intensity of the Dies Irae to the wispiness of disembodied souls in the Libera me Domine, this is music from another plane entirely. Thank you for being a part of the Hershey Symphony family! We Love performing for you!
