Orchestra Seattle | Seattle Chamber Singers (OSSCS)

Clinton Smith, conductor

Mozart – Ave verum corpus, K. 618
Chopin – Work for piano and orchestra TBD
Brahms – Ein deutsches Requiem, Op. 45

Brahms’ German Requiem deals with the fleeting nature of life, the need for solace following loss, the hope of a final attainment of peace, and a reward for struggle. The composer intended it not as a mass for the dead, but rather to offer comfort and consolation for the living. According to Michael Steinberg, “Mozart never invented anything more affecting” than his brief Ave verum corpus. OSSCS once again partners with the Chopin Foundation of the United States to present the winner of their annual competition in concert.

Tickets: $25 general, $20 seniors, $10 students, youth free
