2016/17 Raleigh Classical Full Series: Britten's War Requiem: World War I Centennial Commemoration
Dates: April 07-08, 2017
Concert Sponsor:
Britten: War Requiem

Grant Llewellyn leads more than 200 musicians in a monumental masterpiece for orchestra and chorus that illustrates the power of the human spirit — the Britten War Requiem.

This year, the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources leads a statewide commemoration, North Carolina in the Great War, presenting special programming and producing educational resources. The North Carolina Symphony is honored to take part in the opening weekend, with a concert program in recognition of the sacrifices made by so many in our state 100 years ago. Together with the North Carolina Master Chorale, Raleigh Boychoir, and vocal soloists Tamara Wilson, Nicholas Phan, and Stephen Powell, NCS will perform Benjamin Britten’s monumental War Requiem on April 7 and 8.
Pre-concert activities in the Meymandi Concert Hall lobby will provide historical context for Britten’s music. Living history interpreters from the Great War Tar Heels will be present in uniform, and concertgoers will be among the first to have the opportunity to view a traveling exhibit, which will then make its way to locations all across the state throughout the year. The exhibit traces the history of North Carolina’s involvement in World War I—from the development of military training camps in our state, to the first soldiers who went to fight in Europe, to those who supported the efforts at home. A pre-concert talk connecting the War Requiem with historical events will take place at 7PM on the evening of each performance.
NCS’s first performance of Britten’s War Requiem on Friday, April 7 leads off the weekend’s activities. Other events include the opening of the World War I exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of History on April 8, a wreath laying ceremony on Capital Square on April 8, and more.
