CSO Sessions Episode 22: Requiem
The second of two programs curated by Mead Composer-in-Residence Missy Mazzoli brings a season of streamed performances to a poignant close. It features the debut of award-winning composer Courtney Bryan’s ethereal and reflective Requiem, which Mazzoli calls “a requiem for a new era.” Vocal quartet Quince Ensemble joins as special guest for this moving work. Also on the program are two a cappella performances by Quince of works by Gilda Lyons and Chicago’s own David Reminick, and a string quartet by Chicago-based cellist Tomeka Reid.
