Stan Engebretson, artistic director of the National Philharmonic Chorale, celebrates his storied tenure with the ensemble with Berlioz’s visionary and masterfully orchestrated Requiem. Engebretson brings Berlioz’s bombastic Opus No. 5, also known as The Grand Messe des Morts, to life with the power of the NatPhil Chorale and soloist Norman Shankle, a tenor who has risen to worldwide prominence through acclaimed performances with the Metropolitan and San Francisco Operas, at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, and the Dresden Semperoper in Germany.

Come see why Berlioz said, "If I were threatened with the destruction of the whole of my works save one, I should crave mercy for the Messe des Morts.”

 

Why We Love This Concert

  • Debut of the 2022-2023 NatPhil chorale!
  • Hear Norman Shankle (previously performed at the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, and Kennedy Center) as the tenor soloist. You’ll really want to hear him singing the Sanctus surrounded by a women’s chorus
  • So much brass- who doesn’t love brass solos and small groups?
