Mozart Requiem

Following the success of December 2020’s Virtual Messiah Sing, Music Worcester invites you to return, this time joining us to sing Mozart’s Requiem, or simply to listen to our wonderful musicians as they present Mozart’s timeless masterpiece.

Directed by Chris Shepard, our ensemble features guest soprano Esther Heideman along with seven singers from CONCORA – Agnes Vojtko, Kirk Bobkowski, Jonathan Stinson, Jennifer Ferrand Kelly, Pamela Johnson, Jack Pott, and Jermaine Woodard – accompanied by the Worcester Festival Chamber Orchestra.

This event is hosted by three ensembles whose performances have been sidelined this year: The Worcester Chorus, the Masterwork Chorus of New Jersey,  and CONCORA, Connecticut’s oldest professional choir.  All three choirs have performed in Worcester’s beautiful Mechanics Hall, where this performance has been filmed and recorded.

Tickets to enjoy the presentation for a full month of unlimited, On Demand viewing are $10 per household. Viewing for all buyers ends on April 27, 2021 at 11:59 PM.  You will be emailed a link to view the concert immediately following purchase.
