From David Myers, Director of the School of Music
The U of M School of Music's collaborative performance of the War Requiem in Detmold, Germany was, in two words - outstanding and moving! Our students and faculty were absolutely spectacular, and the entire performance was a thrill, as was seeing the wonderful interchange between our students and those of the Hochschule für Musik Detmold. We can be enormously proud of our students and, of course, of the work of our faculty in preparing them.
We look forward to hosting students and faculty from the Hochschule für Musik Detmold next week and for the Twin Cities performance of Benjamin Britten's War Requiem on March 1 at Ted Mann Concert Hall.
