Newcastle upon Tyne - Musical - The People's Requiem
Sunday 28 November 2021, 2.45pm GMT
Alumni and guests are invited to join the Northumbrian Cambridge Association an afternoon musical titled, The People's Requiem.
Marking a return to large-scale music-making, and in memory of those who have lost their lives to Covid-19, this performance features a massed orchestra and choir, consisting of Royal Northern Sinfonia, Chorus of Royal Northern Sinfonia (including your own NCA President, Heather Cordell) and over 200 musicians from the North East community.
Operatic passion, religious grandiosity, and powerful emotions are all hallmarks of Verdi’s Requiem – one of the most iconic pieces of classical music of all time. From the unstoppable force of the Dies Irae to the hushed finale, it captures the imagination like little else.
