Under the baton of renowned Guest Conductor Dante Anzolini, The Symphony Orchestra will perform works by two of our greatest composers! Starting off this afternoon of great music will be Mozart’s Symphony No. 29 in A Major, K. 201, an enchanting composition which has been described as having the perfect Classical balance between grace and energy.
Then, an extraordinarily rich body of work which may very well be the most comforting, humane requiem ever written. Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem, “A German Requiem.” Brahms was only in his 30’s when he wrote this choral masterwork, inspired by the death of his mother, and it will be brought to life by the full Symphony Orchestra & Chorus under the baton of Maestro Guillermo Figueroa,and will feature soprano Devon Guthrie, bass-baritone Joseph Beutel; Choral Director Carmen Flórez-Mansi, and the Eastern New Mexico Chamber Choir under the direction of Jason Paulk.
