Planned performance of Britten's War Requiem cancelled
Originally, the performance of Benjamin Britten's "War Requiem" was planned for the winter semester 2020/21. Because the work is a challenge, rehearsals should have started already at the end of the summer semester 2020. Because of Covid-19, this was impossible to realize. Therefore, the already planned performance in the Bremen cathedral on the 7th of February 2021 had to be cancelled.
Programme in the winter semester 2020/21
The orchestra and the choir have both very successfully worked digital in the summer semester. But now everyone is eager to play and sing live again. Though this will not be possible in the usual way in big groups, it may be that the orchestra can rehearse divided in a string ensemble and a woodwind/brass ensemble and that the choir can rehearse in two or three small groups. It is hoped, that definite announcements can be made here in October.
