With its potent mix of fury and fear, punctuated with hammering chords and explosive bass drum bangs, the Requiem Mass is one of Verdi’s most striking choral works. For one night only—on the composer’s exact birthday—Riccardo Muti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus celebrate the 200th anniversary of Verdi’s birth by reprising their acclaimed 2009 performances, which sold out months in advance and led to their Grammy® Award-winning recording.

This magical moment in musical history will be captured and shared with the world through a live webcast and on-demand viewing availability following the performance. Join us at Millennium Park (Chicago, IL) as we host a special viewing of this performance in Pritzker Pavilion or watch the concert from the comfort of your own computer at cso.org/Verdi or on the CSO’s Facebook page at facebook.com/chicagosymphony.
