St. Philip’s Choir to Perform Mozart’s Requiem

Good Friday concert begins at 7:30 p.m.

The choir of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Garrison will perform Mozart’s Requiem in D Minor (K. 626) in the sanctuary at 7:30 p.m. on Good Friday, March 25. Composed in Vienna in 1791, the work was left unfinished upon the composer’s death on Dec. 5. Generally believed to have been mostly completed by his friend Franz Xaver Sussmayr, the Requiem today is acknowledged as one of the masterpieces in classical choral literature.

The soloists will be Julianne Heckert, soprano; Terry Platz, alto; Wright Moore, tenor and Michael McKee, bass. Accompanying the soloists and choir will be the Hudson Highlands Chamber Orchestra. Durward Entrekin, music director at St. Philip’s, will conduct.

The concert is free, although donations are welcomed. St. Philip’s is located at 1101 Route 9D in Garrison, opposite the Garrison School, where parking will also be available.
