Pilgrim Festival Chorus, the region’s community choral ensemble, proudly presents Johannes Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem).  One of the greatest works of the choral repertoire, the Brahms “Requiem” continues to resonate with listeners everywhere, even 150 years after its composition. The seven movements suggest a journey that explore the nature of life, death, sorrow, hope, and comfort, in essence, the universal human condition. From the deepest sense of loss and the understanding that life is short, the music brings us to a realization that a time will come when death is no more, and ultimately brings us to a place of comfort and peace.

Since 1999, PFC has provided South Shore audiences with classical choral music concerts. More than 90 vocalists of all adult ages from 20 South Shore communities currently fill out the ensemble. In addition to its spring large-scale choral concert, PFC presents an annual winter concert and “Messiah Sing” in December, as well as a summer concert series featuring Broadway and Americana music.

PFC participates in the Card to Culture Program, a collaboration between Mass Cultural Council, the Department of Transitional Assistance, Women, Infants & Children (WIC) Nutrition Program, and Massachusetts Health Connector, by increasing access to cultural experiences.

Tickets for “Ein Deutsches Requiem” are $25 for adults, $20 for senior citizens, and $15 for students over 14. Card to Culture attendees and children ages 14 and under are admitted for free. Tickets are available at pilgrimfestivalchorus.org/tickets, from PFC members, and at the door.
