A reader recently sent in this note about an upcoming performance of Verdi’s Requiem:
I represent the Community Chorus of Detroit. In a labor of extreme love and passion, we are performing the Verdi Requiem in mid-May at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit. I have initiated a Kickstarter project with a goal of only $6,000 to help cover the expenses of the orchestra and staging. We are commemorating the 16 performances of this great work by the victims of the Holocaust at Terezin in World War II. Please take a look at the project and the video and consider being a backer.
