Giancarlo Guerrero conducts the Nashville Symphony & Chorus
Featuring the Violins of Hope

PROGRAM
Verdi – Requiem

PERFORMERS
Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero
, conductor | Nashville Symphony Chorus | Tucker Biddlecombe, chorus director | Erika Sunnegårdh, soprano | Michelle DeYoung, mezzo-soprano | Alexey Dolgov, tenor | Eric Owens, bass

It's the choral music event of the year: Verdi's Requiem, a masterful creation written for four soloists, double choir and orchestra, led by Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero. One of the great composers for opera, Verdi brought his command of musical drama to this deeply poignant work, which is full of gorgeous melodies and profound emotion, moving from fear and loss to transcendent joy. This concert features a true dream-team of vocal soloists – all four singers are among the very best in their field, and together with your Nashville Symphony and Chorus, they will bring this music brilliantly to life.

The Saturday-evening performance of this concert will be broadcast live on 91Classical beginning at 8 pm.

This concert is part of Violins of Hope Nashville, a community-wide initiative highlighting a collection of restored violins played by Jews during the Holocaust. Learn more about the more than 30 events taking place this spring.

Verdi's Requiem occupies a unique place in Holocaust history, as it was performed by the inmates at Theresienstadt concentration camp. Even as the Red Cross was made to believe that Theresienstadt was a model resettlement village for European Jews, more than 120,000 inmates would be killed, either in the camp or at the extermination centers of Treblinka and Auschwitz.

Amid these oppressive circumstances, the inmates joined together, led by fellow inmate Rafael Schächter, for performances of Verdi’s Requiem that provided opportunities for hope and for quiet, determined resistance. Schächter said that the text gave the singers a chance to “sing to the Nazis what they could not say to them.” Their story is told in the film Defiant Requiem.

Learn More About the Concert

Come early and learn more about the music at our Classical Conversations with Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero, taking place one hour before the concert in the Balcony Lobby.

Following the concert, Maestro Guerrero will lead an informal Q&A at the back of the concert hall, on the Orchestra Level.
