Verdi Requiem: The Lenten Concert

The Chamber Choir of Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, directed by Ryan Jackson, with the Shelest Piano Duo.


A dramatic and powerful prayer for deliverance from death and hell, Verdi’s Requiem is a thrilling product of years of experience as the world’s greatest opera composer. The Shelest Piano Duo joins us for what we believe will be the first performance of the Requiem with piano four-hands in decades!

Hear Verdi’s superb vocal writing as never before. Expect a bold performance that explores all the drama and dynamics of the score, with the incisive diction and vibrant sound that has come to define the Fifth Avenue Chamber Choir. Sung in Latin with English surtitles.

This concert also will be performed on Friday, April 3.

Tickets (starting at $15) will be on sale on Sunday mornings in the Chesnut Gallery beginning several weeks before the performance. Tickets also are available online.
