Día de los Muertos featuring Brahms’s Requiem

10/31/2020 to 11/15/2020

Online, Washington, DC 20009

The New Orchestra of Washington (NOW) and Choral Arts celebrate Día de los Muertos in a joint presentation featuring Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem. NOW Artistic Director Alejandro Hernandez-Valdez describes this masterpiece as a universal, human requiem. Johannes Brahms composed this requiem in German instead of traditional Latin, and ventured outside of the liturgy for new texts. Composed while Brahms grieved the deaths of multiple friends and loved ones, the music and text embrace death as a part of our shared destiny. This spirit is inherent in the Mexican tradition of Día de los Muertos: a spirit of celebrating, not mourning, the lives of those that are lost. Join us in remembering the lives of those who lost their battle with COVID-19. Learn more about the history of Día de los Muertos at a A Spirited Discussion: Requiems and Día de los Muertos with the Mexican Cultural Institute on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at 5:00 pm. Complimentary admission is included with ticket purchase. Brahms: Ein deutsches Requiem. Featured Artists: Alejandro Hernandez-Valdez, conductor; New Orchestra of Washington; Choral Arts Chamber Singers & Symphonic Chorus; Scott Tucker, Artistic Director; Trevor Scheunemann, baritone; Laura Choi Stuart, soprano Brian Mextorf, baritone. 90 minutes, no intermission.
