Grant Park Orchestra & War Requiem

The Grant Park Symphony Orchestra or simply the Grant Park Orchestra is a publicly sponsored symphony orchestra that provides free performances in the Grant Park Music Festival during the summer months in Millennium Park in Chicago, Illinois. The War Requiem, Op. 66 is a large-scale, non-liturgical setting of the Requiem Mass composed by Benjamin Britten mostly in 1961 and completed January 1962. Interspersed with the traditional Latin texts, in telling juxtaposition, are settings of Wilfred Owen poems. 0.7/5

Review: 'War Requiem' from Grant Park Orchestra, choruses: The tension remains throughout, until in the closin...
Last night, Jim and I went to our first Millennium Park concert of the season, to hear the Grant Park Orchestra and Chorus perform Benjamin Britten's "War Requiem." Despite some showers (the pay station reader wouldn't accept the damp ticket from my pocket) and the bugs who love the damp, we had a great time. Lots of small and very enthusiastic neighbors around us last night, which made for lots of visual entertainment. Last year, we figured we went to five of the series - we're shooting to break our record this summer.
I was downtown yesterday with the kids when I got to hear the Grant Park Orchestra rehearsing the War Requiem ... brought back memories
