Requium 2019 SVPC

 

Spring Collaboration Concert on March 6, 2020

Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church choir, Cupertino High School choirs and orchestra, professional soloists, and organ presented a concert featuring Mozart’s world famous Requiem. Mozart's Requiem is a choral masterpiece whose genesis is shrouded in mystery—one that makes the piece all the more fascinating and emotionally stirring.  But aside from all the myths, its beauty remains. Requiem is a gravely solemn, dramatic and transcendent piece of sublime music.
