To celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of the Italian composer, Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901), the University of Sydney Graduate Choir will open its 2013 subscription season with a performance of his choral masterpiece, the Messa da Requiem, on 28 April.

To perform this celebrated work according to Verdi’s wishes, the choir needs more singers than the Great Hall can accommodate, so it will be mounted in the Sydney Town Hall. The choir will invite 200 guest singers to join in, and will present the work as a community event, as per its “Sydney Sings Messiah” concerts.
