Come and hear our final choral concert of the year as we combine to perform the monumental Ein deutsches Requiem of Johannes Brahms. The work is transcendent and triumphant! Rather than setting the texts of the Latin Requiem, Brahms carefully chose and combined texts from Scripture to produce a dramatic journey not for the dead, but for the living. "Selig sind die da Leid tragen, denn sie sollen getröstet werden" - blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

This event is FREE, and will be held at Austin Baptist Church off Ribelin Road in northwest Austin on Sunday, April 12 at 3pm.
