Grande Messe des Morts
Kennedy Center Concert Hall.
Hector Berlioz’s Grande Messe des Morts is massive in both sound and scale. Feel the grandeur of the Requiem throughout the hall as antiphonal brass augment the orchestra for the original surround sound experience.
This will be the first performance of the Berlioz Requiem in Washington, DC in nearly 15 years. Join us for this exceptional concert!
