Spring Oratorio: Mozart Requiem


The Cornell University Men's Glee Club joins the

Smith College Glee Club in performance of Mozart's final composition


Northampton, MA—On Saturday, March 8 at 8pm, Smith College Glee Club presents their annual Spring Oratorio. The Glee Club, in conjunction with the Cornell University Men's Glee Club and several renowned soloists, offers Mozart's Requiem, his final composition. The Saturday evening event is free and will take place in John M. Greene Hall on the Smith College Campus.

 

The concert will begin with the Cornell Men's Glee Club, conducted by Robert Isaacs, performing a selection of pieces. The group has been a leader in the world of glee clubs since it's founding in 1868. They have also toured many countries and performed with prominent orchestras across the United States.

 

In the second half of the performance, the Smith College Glee Club will join the Cornell Men's Glee Club to sing Mozart's Requiem conducted by Jonathan Hirsh. This work will feature soloists Dominique Labelle, soprano; Judith Bowers, mezzo-soprano; William Hite, tenor; and Timothy Jerome Jones, bass-baritone. These performers have sung with orchestras and performed in operas worldwide.


The Requiem is famous for being Mozart's final composition, left unfinished at the time of his death in 1791. Bursting with intensity, power, passion and subtlety, Mozart's Requiem is a towering masterpiece of Western culture, a perennial favorite of performers and audiences worldwide.

 

For more information, please call 413-585-3150 or e-mail ensmgr@smith.edu. This is an event that you don't want to miss!
