Berkshire Lyric, the 80 voice Berkshire Lyric Chorus, will perform the Mozart Requiem accompanied by a full orchestra and a solo vocal quartet. This masterpiece of the choral literature was Mozart’s final work as he was dying in 1791.

The solo quartet will include acclaimed soprano Maria Valdes, known to the Berkshires through her leading roles with Berkshire Opera Festival, tenor Sam Krausz of Chicago, a recent winner of the Metropolitan Opera Auditions for Indiana, Metropolitan Opera mezzo and Richmond resident Marjorie Dix, and Berkshire Lyric’s resident vocal artist, John Demler.

The program will also include Brahms’ Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny) and will begin with Mozart’s motet Ave Verum Corpus, in tribute to victims of the war in Ukraine, followed by Mozart’s Laudate Dominum with soprano Valdes.

Under the leadership of artistic director Jack Brown, Berkshire Lyric is returning to Ozawa Hall for the first time in three years, after a pause in the pandemic.

Along with the Berkshire Lyric Chorus, Berkshire Lyric has four other choral ensembles; The Lyric Chamber Chorus, the Lyric Children’s Chorus ages 6 to 14, Melodious Accord for high school girls, and Ubi Caritas, select mixed a cappella group for singers ages 16-26. Lyric’s wide range of music education programs include The Lyric Choral Scholar’s Program, The Young Singers Competition and the free Annual Summer Choral Camp in Pittsfield and Dalton.
