A Concert of music by Giuseppe Verdi:

Verdi Poster as jpegLeading North East musicians are to bring Giuseppe Verdi’s spectacular and dramatic Messa da Requiem to Hall One. The operatic style of the Requiem has always both excited and moved audiences, and the overture has that same vivid and emotional style. Orchestra North East, the two choral societies and David Murray each have a strong reputation for giving first-rate performances in their concerts and as many will remember, their acclaimed performance of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana in 2013 in Hall One was one of the highlights of that summer season. Now the same forces, joined by a team of rising young singers, re-unite to give what they intend to be an equally memorable performance of Verdi’s choral masterpiece.

Tickets: Adults £18; Students (16+) £8; under 16 £4 but FREE with paying Adult.
