About the Concert

Haydn’s Symphony No. 39 marries stirring action and high emotion with gracious wit and elegance, and features Francesco Lecce-Chong performing on fortepiano. Jessie Montgomery’s Records From a Vanishing City intertwines vibrant jazz and folk influences with a haunting Angola lullaby. The Sonoma State University Symphonic Chorus partners with the Santa Rosa Symphony to offer Mozart’s Requiem. Written from his death bed, this final masterpiece takes us on a transcendent voyage from terror to hope, with a halo of serenity and peace crowning its angelic conclusion.
"SSU Symphonic Chorus soared above the mighty orchestral forces assembled below and stole the show..." 
– San Francisco Classical Voice
