“Melody is the essence of music,” Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart said. “I compare a good melodist to a fine racer, and counterpointists to hack post-horses.” Perhaps no instrument conveys melody quite like the human voice. Join us for this program of music featuring the Coro Lux Oratorio Society choir and soloists in Mozart’s Requiem as well as Rimsky-Korsakov’s mythical tribute to the rivalry between Mozart and Antonio Salieri.
