Following their critically acclaimed performance of ‘The Rite of Spring’, “…of a confidence, precision colour and visceral excitement with adrenaline which many full time professional outfits would find hard to match.” (***** Christopher Morley, Birmingham Post) and their recent tour to perform the very same at the legendary Rudolfinum in Prague, Kimichi School Community Orchestra presents ‘Verdi Requiem’.
First performed in 1874, Giuseppe Verdi’s Messea da Requiem is the most commonly performed requiem mass – aside from Mozart. Written in memory of Alessandro Manzoni, this piece includes the culturally famous piece ‘Dies Irae’.
Bringing together a unique blend of professional and amateur orchestral players, choir and soloists conducted by Keith Slade and lead by Charlotte Moseley, this concert is in aid of the Kimichi School Scholarship Fund.
Tickets for those audience members under the age of 16 are free and £15 to all other patrons.
Kimichi School was – and is – the first and only independent school in the West Midlands built around and for music. Teaching all subjects, their dynamic teaching team sees their 36 students aged 9-18 enjoy a full, balanced and altogether refreshingly different curriculum. Small but mighty, Kimichi is now accepting applications for September 2019 with waiting lists already filling up.
Funds from the concert will enable those with less achieve more.
