The People's Requiem

Applications are now closed

Operatic drama and passion, religious grandiosity and powerful emotion are all hallmarks of one of the most iconic pieces of classical music, Verdi’s Requiem – and this year we invited members of our community to be a part of it.

Marking a return to large-scale music making and in memory of those who have lost their lives to Covid-19, we sought experienced adult amateur orchestral players and choral singers from across the North East to join Royal Northern Sinfonia and Chorus of Royal Northern Sinfonia as we put together a massed performance of this incredible piece of music, to be conducted by our new Principal Conductor, Dinis Sousa, at Sage Gateshead.

Participants are currently working together to release a performance of which the North East can be proud, taking place live in the acoustic splendour of Sage Gateshead’s main hall on 28 November 2021.

We hope to see you there! Buy tickets here.
