OMM and the Audi Youth Choir Academy perform Brahms' Requiem (6 Sep 2012)

Click to Enlarge
This looks like a very exciting concert to attend: The Orchestra of the Music Makers pairs up with the European-based Audi Youth Choir Academy (Audi Jugendchorakademie) to perform the Brahms Requiem. They are joined by two of Germany’s young talents; soprano Theresa Kr├╝gl who won the Jugend Musiziert for the district of Passau in 2010, and baritone Virgil Mischok who recently performed at the Cape Classic Festival in South Africa.

Although the orchestra has won lots of rave reviews for their concert and live recording of Mahler's 2nd Symphony, this is the first time the OMM is performing a full choral work. The Audi Youth Choir Academy consists of youths gathered by the austere automobile company for private singing lessons and group choral training. Important collaborators include Kent Negano and his Bavarian State Orchestra. Here's more information about them:

This looks set to be an exciting collaboration by young musicians from here and abroad. Find out how to get tickets from the Events Page.
