Requiem (1837)

Thomas Glenn, tenor

Oakland Symphony Chorus
(Lynne Morrow, Music Director)

Oakland Youth Orchestra (Michael Morgan, Artistic Director)

Every inch of the historic Paramount Theatre stage will brim with music to mark the 25th anniversary of the Oakland East Bay Symphony in the grandest of styles as Maestro Morgan musters the full complement of orchestra, Oakland Youth Orchestra (50th anniversary) and Oakland Symphony Chorus (55th anniversary) for Berlioz’ monumental Requiem. Berlioz’ masterwork is a powerful, deeply moving and timelessly relevant tribute to victims of war. It features an unusually large orchestra, chorus, tenor soloist and four brass ensembles, making it one of the most impressive works of the Romantic era. Symphony audiences have enjoyed tenor Thomas Glenn’s earlier appearances, which have been acclaimed as being “alive with energy and expression” (San Francisco Classical Voice). Glenn’s performance as Robert Wilson in John Adams’ opera Doctor Atomic won a 2012 Grammy Award.
