Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center
Mendelssohn's beautiful Symphony No. 5 (Reformation) is featured with its recognizable melody, based on Martin Luther's chorale Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott (A Mighty Fortress Is Our God) in the final movement. A German Requiem described by Brahms himself as a "requiem for humanity," is heavy with imagery and lush choral sounds.
