This season, the Harvard Summer Chorus will perform Mozart’s Requiem like you’ve never heard it before. Upon his death in 1791, Mozart had only completed fragments and outlines of his work, and Franz Süßmayr composed the rest of the “Mozart” Requiem the following year. The Summer Chorus will journey through the mystery surrounding the work, opening the concert by performing only the fragments of the Requiem that Mozart himself composed.  The concert will conclude with the first performance of a new completion of the Requiem written by Ostrzyga, who will also conduct our performances. Maestro Ostrzyga is the Music Director at the University of Cologne where he conducts the Symphony Orchestra, Choir, and Chamber Choir, and he has gained an international reputation as a composer of choral music, having been commissioned by performers and festivals around the globe. The chorus is once again honored to be joined by the renowned Boston Modern Orchestra Project.
