Michael Dean, bass-baritone
University of Maryland Concert Choir, Edward Maclary, Director of Choral Activities
An ‘unknown, gray stranger’ knocked on Mozart’s door requesting a Requiem Mass on the condition that the composer would not seek to learn the identity of his patron. Mozart threw himself obsessively into the composition, but fell ill and was unable to finish the score. Join Maestra Alsop and explore the mystery behind the Mass. Join us after the concert for a conductor-led Q&A session.
*The Saturday, December 2 performance will be followed by a ‘Mozart & Martinis’ after-party featuring live music by DJ Landis Expandis, food specials by Pinch Dumplings and $6 martini specials!
