(SOLD OUT) Faure: Requiem

Recurring event see all

Cantori New York

October 22nd , 6:00pm 8:30pm

THE LONG STORY

As we slowly resurface from the collective suffering wrought by COVID-19, we must take time to mourn the terrible toll of those we’ve lost, while also striving to find meaning and light in the darkness.

Fauré wrote his requiem to be a musical consolation, a deeply human response to the suffering of death and the pain of grief, that paints a picture of the paradise that awaits, and the merciful peace of eternal rest. 

We close our season with a large-scale, outdoor, candlelit performance of this piercingly beautiful work, performed by the extraordinary singers of Cantori New York.

The Short Story

Join us in remembrance of those we’ve lost, and in hope of a better world to come.
