Choir to perform this weekend

South Shore audiences will be able to hear two performances of Brahms’ “Requiem,” at 8 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Sunday at St. Theresa Catholic Church. Tickets at the door will be $10 general and $8 for seniors and students. The 55-member Tahoe Choir will sing in conjunction with the Lake Tahoe Community College chorus.

This marks the second time in 11 years for Brahms on the South Shore. The highly versatile Tahoe Choir has sung in the past several times with the Reno Philharmonic.

Doors to both performances will open a half-hour before each concert for audience seating. Parking is free. Audiences are encouraged to be in their seats before each of the non-intermission concerts begin.

Brahms is probably best known for his four symphonies and other forms of instrumental music. His vocal solo music is loved by amateur and professional singers alike. His “Lullaby” has always had universal appeal, but it is the “Requiem” that is truly his crowning musical masterpiece. Soloists are soprano Jay Newburg and baritone John Hall.

Doors to both performances will open a half-hour for audience seating before each concert. Free public parking is available and audiences are encouraged to be in their seats before each of the non-intermission concerts begin at St. Theresa will be no intermission.
