Benefit Concert for Baton Rouge Flood Victims, with a performance of the Mozart Requiem by orchestra musicians combined from both the Louisiana Philharmonic and Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestras, with a chorus of singers from the New Orleans and Baton Rouge regions, vocal soloists (pictured above) Amy Pfrimmer, Daveda Karanas, Tyler Smith, Terrance Brown, and conductor NOCCA Alum Paul Mauffray at Trinity Episcopal Church.
General admission is by donation, and your tax deductible donation checks can be made to the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra (with “Musician Relief Fund” in the memo line). Many of the BRSO musicians and chorus members have faced significant losses in the recent flood including their homes, cars, instruments, and some affiliated with the orchestra have lost nearly everything.
We in New Orleans can relate first-hand to these experiences, and many of us have faced similar circumstances related to Hurricane Katrina. In a show of solidarity and empathy we reach out to our colleagues with this performance of the Mozart Requiem. This is a moment for our community of musicians to acknowledge the transient nature of life and to mourn the loss of our neighbors.
Instrumentalists as well as singers from the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra and Chorus will be joining musicians from the Louisiana Philharmonic to perform this famous Requiem which is the final work Mozart was attempting to complete at the time of his early death.
