UNT’s Symphony Orchestra and Grand Chorus will present Verdi’s Requiem this spring in both Denton and Fort Worth, sponsored in part by the UNT Fine Arts Series. A 3 p.m. April 18 performance at the Murchison Performing Arts Center will be followed by an encore presentation at 8 p.m. April 19 at the Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth.
David Itkin will conduct the orchestra and Jerry McCoy will direct the chorus in the famous funeral mass. Soloists include former UNT student Christina Major, soprano; Alissa Anderson (’03), mezzo-soprano; doctoral student Kwan Kyun Joo, tenor; and Stephen Morscheck, assistant professor of music, bass-baritone.
If you can’t make it to the Murchison, you can view the concert live online. The College of Music began streaming performances of its major ensembles last fall. Just go to the UNT College of Music Recording Services web site and you’ll see the broadcast begin automatically about 15 minutes before the start of the concert.
