Mozart Requiem—Lecture, Analysis and Sing-Along

Resonance @ First Church Berkeley

Registration for church members is free—contact Derek at [email protected] to do so!

Every year in January, we’ve had a Festival Chorus featuring our church choirs and singers from our wider community! In this special year, Director of Music Derek Tam is taking the Festival Chorus online with a two-session deep dive on Zoom into Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Requiem. Though left quite incomplete upon his untimely death in 1791, the piece has nonetheless become a cornerstone of the choral literature.

In these two 90-minute sessions on Jan. 23 and 30, we’ll unpack the dramatic history of the Requiem, analyze individual movements, and sing along as well! There is also an opportunity to record a movement of the Requiem for a virtual choir project!
