Mozart's Requiem

Friday 17 May  |  7.30pm
St Patrick's Cathedral, Parramatta

Vienna, June, 1791.


The world's most famous composer, juggling multiple commissions and worsening health, has taken on one work he won't complete: a requiem mass for a beautiful young Countess. By December, at only 35 years old, leaving behind a despairing wife and two young children, he himself will be dead. 


Mozart's Requiem in D Minor is a towering monument of the choral repertoire. Let the full force of River City Voices carry you through Mozart’s testament of power, faith, awe and hope as the choir joins for the first time with the dynamic young Western Sydney Philharmonic.


Four magnificent soloists and the luscious acoustic of Saint Patrick's Cathedral complete an exquisite performance.


"I am writing this Requiem for myself", Mozart said — but a work this beloved surely speaks to us all.

Don't miss what will be an unforgettable Parramatta premiere!
