Gaithersburg Community Chorus Concert Presents Mozartís "Requiem"
The Gaithersburg Community Chorus, directed by Hugh Harvey, III, is proud to present three nights of Mozartís Requiem at this yearís spring concerts. The performances will take place on Saturday and Sunday, May 19 and 20 at St. John Neumann Catholic Church, 9000 Warfield Rd. and Tuesday, May 22 at the Rosborough Theater at Asbury Methodist Village. All concerts begin at 7:30 p.m.
The Requiem Mass in D minor, composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1791, is known as one of the most mysterious pieces of music ever created, mostly because of the myths and controversies surrounding it. Requiem was Mozartís last piece of work and was left unfinished at his death. It was completed by Franz Xaver SŁssmayr, but there is debate on what portions not in Mozartís handwriting were based on his ideas.
Admission to the concert is free. Donations are gratefully accepted. The Community Chorus is sponsored by the City of Gaithersburg Cultural Arts Advisory Committee, and is funded in part by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive.
