TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - The Bach Chorale Singers open their 49th season with the last work of one of the world's greatest composers.
Mozart's "Requiem" was left unfinished at the time of his death in 1791. This piece is ideal for the 60 member choir due to its emphasis on vocals. Bach Chorale Singers' Karl Brandt said eight of the 14 movements are entirely choral.
"This is a beautiful piece of work. Very moving. It gets under your skin," said Brandt when asked why the performance would also appeal to more modern music lovers.
The performance is Friday, October 11 at the University Church in West Lafayette. Tickets are $20 each for adults. Students and children's tickets are $10. You can get tickets at the Bach Chorale's office at 839 Main Street in Lafayette or through their website.
