Story

Join conductors, Holly Druckman & Lorraine Fitzmaurice, in a community performance of Brahms' "Ein Deutsches Requiem" also referred to as his “Requiem for the living". Titled as such because this work was written to pull society together with common purpose. This concert will also feature two premieres. The Anonymous Soldier is a choral piece by Mattia Maurée, a Boston resident and rising star in the arts and cultural scene. Hope is the Thing with Feathers is a choral piece by Brookline composer, Ben Yee-Paulson.

We are raising $13,200 for costs associated with renting and setting up spaces for performance, and honorariums for local musicians who will join us in making this momentous concert a reality. More than 100 community members have signed up to join us, and you may know some of them!

​This event is grass-roots organized and needs our collective contributions to make it happen. We appreciate everyone's dedication in lending your musicianship, bringing your friends and families to experience this concert, and very importantly, choosing to make meaningful financial contributions to this concert!

If you prefer to donate via check, please write "Requiem for the living" on the memo line, addressed to:
