CUSO and the University of Illinois Oratorio Society come together to perform one of the most moving and memorable works of the choral repertoire, Giuseppe Verdi’s Requiem. From the sublime beauty of soaring solo voices to the awe-inspiring power of the full orchestra and chorus, Verdi masterfully uses all of the vocal and instrumental forces at his command.
