Canterbury Voices presents Brahms Requiem
Date(s) - Nov 01, 2020

Civic Center Music Hall
We begin our season with Johannes Brahms’ choral masterpiece, Ein deutsches Requiem, written after the deaths of his mother and composer Robert Schumann. It became the central work of Brahms’ career, one that established him as a composer of major stature, and linked two of the most important spheres of his lifelong musical endeavor – the vocal and the symphonic. Canterbury chooses Brahms’ own piano transcriptions as the accompaniment: two pianos, four hands.
Canterbury is thrilled to welcome to the stage world-renowned soprano, Sarah Coburn, and Grammy Award winning baritone, Gabriel Preisser!
