LSO collaborates with the Lied Center for Performing Arts for Benjamin Britten's powerfully dramatic War Requiem. The mammoth oratorio is scored for symphonic orchestra, chamber orchestra, organ, vocal soloists, boys choir, and full mixed voice choir. As a pacifist, Britten interwove the traditional Latin requiem mass text with Wilfred Owen poetry.
If you're a long-time LSO fan or are interested in trying them out for the first time, their newly lowered ticket prices (all tickets are $10 or $25!) make LSO the perfect way to enjoy live symphonic music. Bring the entire family: children ages 5-17 receive $5 tickets, made possible by the Lienemann Charitable Foundation Student Ticket Program.
