The 2023 UW-Superior Chorfest High School Honors Choir will feature Mozart’s immortal Requiem in D Minor. Incomplete at the time of his death, Mozart’s Requiem remains one of the most powerful and beloved works for choir and orchestra. Under the direction of Dr. Michael Fuchs, students will have the opportunity to share the stage with professional musicians from the Duluth-Superior Symphony Orchestra and professional soloists. The festival will also feature performances by the UWS Singers and Chorale, as well as Elaine Hagenberg’s poignant and moving piece, You Do Not Walk Alone. Please contact Dr. Michael Fuchs with any questions or for additional information.
