Verdi in the Cathedral

August 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Verdi in the Cathedral

This performance of Verdi’s mighty Requiem is the culmination of the 2019 Chester Choral Week, taking place at the University of Chester.

This unashamedly theatrical version of the Requiem Mass was completed in 1874 and requires large choral and orchestral forces, together with four soloists.

The Chester Choral Week, a week-long choral course celebrates, this year, its 25th Anniversary. After twelve of them based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, the Choral Week moved to Surrey in August, 2007, and has now relocated to Chester. It is unequivocally established as a major national choral event encompassing a wide variety of choral styles, with singers travelling to Chester from all parts of Britain and Europe. The 150 strong North of England Festival Chorus, with its professional orchestra, is comprised of all the members of the Choral Week.
