Berlioz's Grande Messe de Morts, Courtesy of Choral Arts

French composer Hector Berlioz went big with his Requiem: Grande Messe de Morts. Between the vocalists and musicians, the work's 1837 premiere is said to have featured more than 400 performers, as well as a large-sounding setup with four brass choirs at the corners of the stage. Now in its 50th season, the Choral Arts Society of Washington recreates that early surround-sound feel with this concert at The Kennedy Center. Along with that monumental piece, they'll also tackle works by Bach and Steven Stucky. Scott Tucker conducts the chorus and orchestra, with tenor Dustin Lucas as soloist.
