Conductor Michael Francis

Mozart Requiem

Wed, Jan 11–Sat, Jan 14, 2023 Roy Thomson Hall
Sun, Jan 15, 2023 George Weston Recital Hall

Mozart’s genius burns with brooding intensity in the legendary Requiem that was to become his own funeral music. Instantly recognizable thanks to its use in the multi-Academy-Award-winning film Amadeus, to experience it live is to feel its brilliance. Stellar vocal soloists join the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, conductor Michael Francis, and the Orchestra for this must-see concert event. The stage is set with reverent choral works by Gregorio Allegri and Hildegard von Bingen, along with an intricate and visionary piece by Beethoven.
