CONCORA's singers will perform Mozart's Requiem in D Minor at the Connecticut Early Music Festival.
Much of the story behind the creation of Mozart’s Requiem still remains a mystery. Commissioned by a count to mark the anniversary of his wife’s death, the composer’s final work was finished after his death by another composer in 1791.

Watch the video Mozart’s Tapestry, in which CONCORA's Artistic Director Chris Shepard explores the theme of texture in music. He explains how composers weave together different musical lines to create a cohesive fabric that is rich and varied while still maintaining the character of the separate strands - just as in a medieval tapestry.
Recorded at Mechanics Hall in Worcester, Massachusetts, the 20-minute video features singers with a chamber orchestra.
