The Brahms Requiem performance will be performed in memory of Dr. Debra Detweiler, Goshen College Professor of Music who died this past April.

“The Brahms is powerful. It’s…a very fine and appropriate way to give her some needed honor,” Yost said.

Hochstetler is hoping the concert will help provide closure.

“It’s not a requiem for the dead as much as it is a requiem for the living… and so that’s why [the Requiem] involves all the orchestra, all the singers, and we even have some community members that are joining us,” Hochstetler said.

Tickets are $12/adults, $8/seniors/students, and are available online at goshen.edu/tickets, or by contacting the Box Office at (574) 535-7566 or boxoffice@goshen.edu.
