Brahms Requiem Concert

Brahms Requiem Concert

Andover Choral Society, directed by Matthew Buono, will perform the
magnificent Ein Deutsches Requiem by Johannes Brahms on Sunday, February 5, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. at West
Middle School in Andover. The concert soloists will be soprano Dana Varga and baritone Philip Lima, and the
chorus will be accompanied by a professional chamber orchestra.
The Requiem is one of Brahms’ most famous and well-loved choral works. The lush, dramatic music, written
when Brahms was in his thirties, conveys a universal message of consolation and hope, offering comfort to all
who mourn and feel the pain of loss.
This event will be a celebration of a new chapter in Andover Choral Society’s 93-year history as the chorus’
new Music Director, Matthew Buono, conducts his first concert with the chorus. Buono is an accomplished
bass-baritone who regularly performs with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops as a member
of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus.
Concert tickets are available for $25 in advance ($30 at the door) and $10 for students. A group rate of ten
tickets for $20 each is also available. To purchase tickets and for more information, please call 978-682-4050 or
