FALLBROOK – On Sunday, April 7, Fallbrook Music Society will present Redlands Symphony performing one of the great masterpieces in classical music. Joining forces with the 39-piece orchestra will be four choirs, consisting of over 150 singers, to bring Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s last, most expressive and profound work, "Requiem in D minor" – to life. The performance will be conducted by maestro Jon Robertson, and feature four distinctive choirs: Community Chorus of Redlands, Ensemble XXI, University of Redlands Madrigal Singers and the University of Redlands Choir.

"This final concert of our 35th anniversary season will be a blockbuster," said Jane Lorenz, president of Fallbrook Music Society. "To conclude his 30th season with the symphony, Maestro Robertson has selected Mozart’s gorgeous Clarinet Concerto and the stunning, wistful "Requiem." It will be an astounding experience you won’t want to miss, and tickets are going quickly," she added.

In this "totally Mozart" program, the orchestra will also perform Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto – his final purely instrumental work. It was almost inevitable that he would write a clarinet concerto, for no other major composer championed the new instrument more than Mozart. Considering his fondness of the instrument and his emotional state of mind at the time, this combination resulted in a work generally considered to be among the finest written for any solo instrument.

The Fallbrook concert will be held in the Bob Burton Center for the Performing Arts, 2400 S. Stage Coach Lane at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 7. Conductor Jon Robertson will present a pre-concert talk about the program at 2:30 p.m., which is open to all ticketholders.

Tickets for this concert are now available through Fallbrook Music Society at (760) 451-8644, and online at Reserved seats are $38 for adults, and $10 for full-time students with I.D.
