Derby Bach Choir will be joining forces with a number of choral groups to perform Verdi’s dramatic Requiem, from 7.30pm on Saturday, March 29.

This takes place at Derby’s Roundhouse and also features Nottingham Symphony Orchestra, plus Derwent Singers, In Accord, Derby Choral Union, Sitwell Singers, Mussoc and Sinfonia Chorale.

The work is packed with as much drama as any of the composer’s famous operatic works and includes the famous, arresting music of the Dies Irae, immediately familiar to classical music lovers.

The concert starts at 7.30pm, will be conducted by Richard Roddis and features soloists Clare Seaton, Kate Symonds-Joy, Jon English and Mario Solimene.
