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.

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. 

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.
