Midday Classical: Brahms' German Requiem

01/21/10 10:00AM By Walter Parker

The Green Mountain Mahler Festival and several other organizations have quickly put together a performance of Brahms' German Requiem at St. Michael's College this Saturday afternoon at 2 to benefit victims of the earthquake in Haiti.  (They're still looking for more singers for the chorus, if you're interested.)  We'll remind ourselves how beautiful and moving it is today.
