    Maine Music Society – Mozart Requiem

    Performance Hall

    This year the MMS Chorale and Orchestra will present the incredible Requiem by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.  This work is shrouded in mystery.  Since he was composing literally on his deathbed, dictating to his assistant Sussmayer, who completed it? Some of the themes are regularly used for TV commercials so there will be many familiar sounds. MMS is thrilled to perform this magnificent work by one of the most celebrated composers of the late 18th century.
