When Johannes Brahms was overseeing the premiere of his Ein Deutsches Requiem, or “A German Requiem,” he would remark to the conductor that he would rather “German” be omitted and that the piece be called a work “for Mankind.” The masterwork, atypical of most settings of the Requiem, has since come to be understood and beloved as a message of comfort and healing to those left behind by the departed. We are proud to present this masterpiece, alongside a newly commissioned work responding to Brahms, with the combined choral forces of Davidson College as our own fervent wish for healing and renewal in our wounded world. Admission is free, but tickets are required. For tickets, please contact the Union Box Office at 704-894-2135.
