PERFORMERS Nashville Symphony Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor Nashville Symphony Chorus Tucker Biddlecombe, chorus director Erika Sunnegårdh, soprano Michelle DeYoung, mezzo-soprano Alexey Dolgov, tenor Eric Owens, bass PROGRAM Verdi - Requiem Verdi was one of the great opera composers, and his Requiem may be his finest work, a large-scale creation written for four soloists, double choir and orchestra. The music is rich with rhythm, gorgeous melodies and deep emotion, moving from fear and loss to transcendent joy. This concert features a true dream-team of vocal soloists - all four singers are among the very best in their field, and together they will bring this music vividly to life.
