Featured performers include Jill Bowen Gardner, soprano; Stephanie Foley Davis, mezzo-soprano; Daniel Stein, tenor; and David Weigel, bass.

The UNCG Symphony Orchestra will be joined by the UNCG Chamber Singers, University Chorale, Women’s Choir, and Glee Clubs.

Verdi’s monumental Requiem is both a memorial for the dead and a plea for consolation of the living. This special performance will combine the powerful music with digital artwork created by UNCG Art students. Verdi’s Requiem is one of the most significant and moving works in the repertoire, and this performance is not to be missed. A pre-concert lecture will tie Verdi’s masterpiece to his biography and the struggle for Italian Nationalism.

Admission is free.

Post updated Feb. 24, revising information about the digital art.
