Fancy yourself an orchestra fan but are never able to make it to a live performance? Tonight, Choose Chicago's got you covered. Listen in to our live webcast of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's dramatic performance of Giuseppe Verdi's Requiem Mass led by conductor Riccardo Muti, on the composer's exact 200 birthday. Find out more about the concert and how you can listen live.
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.
Conductor of the CSO, Riccardo Muti is extremely well-versed in Verdi's work, considered to be the greatest Verdi conductor and interpreter of our time (Chicago Tribune), and brings more than 40 years of experience and a diploma in composition and conducting from the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milanto tonight's performance.
Don't miss your opportunity to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Verdi's birth and listen in live to this heart-wrenching performance of Verdi's Requiem Mass through Choose Chicago's live webcast here tonight at 7 PM. Sit back in the comfort of your home, gather together with a group of orchestra-enthusiasts, or enjoy the stunning sounds of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra over dinner - however or wherever you tune in, be sure to listen to Verdi's composition in a way you've never experienced with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's live webcast this evening.
