UC San Diego Distinguished Professor of Music and La Jolla Symphony and Chorus Music Director Steven Schick will conduct a performance of Giuseppe Verdi's Reqiuem.

Guest artists include Ariana Strahl (soprano), Victoria Vargas (mezzo-soprano), Robert Breault (tenor), Colin Ramsey (bass-baritone), the San Diego Master Choral and the San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus.

Verdi composed his magnificent Requiem in 1874, when he was in his sixties and thought that he had retired. Requiem was composed nearly by accident: Verdi proposed that a setting of the great text should be made by a group of composers, but when the others dropped out, he wrote the whole thing himself. Millions of music lovers have been grateful ever since for Verdi’s return from retirement. The La Jolla Symphony and Chorus will be joined in this production by guest choruses and operatic soloists for the concert event of the season.
