Summer Recaps: Dallas Symphony 'Mozart's Requiem'


Back in April, my sister and I checked out the Dallas Symphony at the Meyerson Symphony Center. We were there to listen to Mozart's Requiem, one of my favorite pieces of classical music. If you've seen the movie 'Amadeus' (available on Netflix) you would understand why. Although the movie wasn't entirely true, it told the beautiful yet tragic story of Wolfgang Mozart's life.


 This mass was written by Mozart right before this death and was left incomplete. It was said to be written to Count Franz von Walsegg to commemorate the anniversary of this wife's death.

As the orchestra played, the lyrics were displayed on the background. Something about reading along as the choir sang made it even more special to watch. I almost found myself in tears just thinking about God's grace and mercy on us. I truly left like I was praying.
Grant them eternal rest, Lord,
and let perpetual light shine on them.
You are praised, God, in Zion,
and homage will be paid to You in Jerusalem.
Hear my prayer,
to You all flesh will come.
Grant them eternal rest, Lord,
and let perpetual light shine on them.

It was the first time I've been to the symphony since elementary. I look forward to attending other concerts. Check out the Dallas Symphony's website for upcoming events.
