Mozart's Requiem to Highlight All-Viennese Program

United by the spirit of composers who were either born or worked in Vienna, the Sonoma State University Chamber Winds Ensemble and Symphonic Chorus will present works by Beethoven, Schubert, Hummel, Krenek and Mozart at 2 p.m. on November 24 in Weill Hall. 

W.A. Mozart’s Requiem K. 626 will feature the chorus with soloists and a professional orchestra under the direction of Jenny Bent. Shrouded in mystery, Mozart’s Requiem is a crowning achievement of his all-too-short life, fusing masterful counterpoint with heartbreaking poignancy.

Tickets are $10-$15, parking included. For information call (707) 664-2324.

Weill Hall at the Green Music Center is located near the intersection of Rohnert Park Expressway and Petaluma Hill Road. Enter campus from Rohnert Park Expressway and park in Lot O.
