In Aspire to the Stars, Arlene Sagan asks “If people want to sing Verdi, and have never sung before, where do they go?”
BCCO, of course. We’ve performed the Verdi Requiem four times in — 1979, 1997, 2004 and 2015. Some people have sung in all four of BCCO Verdi Requiem performances. And many have sung it with other organizations as well. And many of our loyal audience members have heard us sing it multiple times as well.
