School of Music to Deliver Powerful Epic
Those looking to get a little more cultural sophistication in between the bass-driven live music phenomena of rap superstars gracing State College this spring need look no further. Classical music lovers are being treated to Verdi’s Requiem on Sunday.
The Penn State Philharmonic and 350 of the University’s choral singers will perform this classic masterpiece at Eisenhower Auditorium at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for students if ordered beforehand and $20 and $10 that day.
This 7-section epic composed by Giuseppe Verdi for double choir and orchestra is widely considered a triumph of the Romantic Era of music and one of the most popular Requiem Masses in history. And to be honest, it just sounds awesome. For a brief preview of what you can expect, check out the video below.
