Britten's "War Requiem" in Performance @ Queens college | New York | United States

The Queens College Choral Society, joined by the QC orchestra and QC choir, will perform Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem in concert at Colden Auditorium, Kupferberg Center for the Arts. War Requiem combines the traditional Latin Requiem text with the poems of Wilfred Owen, a “war poet” who died in World War I. Britten’s work is one of the most extraordinary calls for peace ever put into musical form, and its performance this year, on the centenary of the World War I armistice, is especially appropriate.
