Parker Symphony Orchestra Brahms Reqiuem Concert Image

One of the earliest composers during the “Romantic” period of music, Brahms was sometimes called the “next” Beethoven. The Colorado Saints Chorale will join the Parker Symphony to perform the lovely Brahms Requiem in the final concert of our 2021-2022 “Season of Renewal”. You will find both remembrance and hope in the soaring voices and orchestral beauty of this classic of choral and symphonic music.
