The Boise Philharmonic celebrates Verdi’s 200th birthday this weekend with a performance of his Requiem, one of his most powerful works in the choral canon.

Verdi is best known for his opera scores, such as “La Traviata,” “Aida” and “Rigoletto,” but on the occasion of his bicentennial it’s his deeply moving Requiem that is widely being performed.

The Philharmonic and its 100-plus member chorale will be joined by guest artists soprano Alla Markovich, mezzo soprano Elizabeth DeShong, tenor Christopher Bengochea, and bass-baritone Adam Cioffari.
