"Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted." This humble message became the inspiration for Johannes Brahm's Requiem—a testament to the power of hope during times of darkness and despair. This Saturday, conductor Mark Mangini brings together two groups: Choral Society of the Hamptons | Greenwich Village Singers to perform Brahms Requiem [Ein Deutsches Requiem] at the historic Old Whalers Church in Sag Harbor. Mangini [musical director for both groups] will conduct the combined choral groups accompanied by a 40-instrument orchestra this Saturday, July 11 at 8pm. Mark Mangini, who is known for his ambitious repertoire selections has chosen the Brahms Requiem "as fitting of our times." Brahms once said his Requiem "may be the most comforting, humane requiem ever written—a message of hope for all."

Ticket Purchase here. You can also choose to be part of a celebrated dinner at the American Hotel, concert and "meet the artists" reception [post-concert] with the purchase of Benefactor & Underwriter tickets. Support for both the Choral Society of the Hamptons and the Greenwich Village Singers is greatly appreciated.
