In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Robert Shaw’s birth, explore the masterwork that captivated his imagination more than any other - the Brahms Requiem.
Intimate seminars will explore topics like score analysis, performance practice of the Requiem, and reflections on Shaw's own Requiem score and approach to the work. Led by Craig Jessop, Ann Howard Jones, and Michael Musgrave, symposium faculty members include conductors who worked closely with Shaw and noted Brahms scholars.
The four-day symposium is centered around the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus performance of the Brahms Requiem. Participants will have an opportunity to attend the opening night concert, observe rehearsals from a unique on-stage perspective, and hear from ASO music director Robert Spano and director of choruses Norman Mackenzie.
Thank you to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus for hosting the Symposium!
