Boston University Symphony Orchestra and Symphonic Chorus

This year, Boston University's annual spring concert is dedicated to Lu Lingzi, a graduate student and pianist killed during the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. To honor her and the tragedy's other victims and first responders, Boston University Symphony Orchestra and Symphonic Chorus present Hector Berlioz's Grande Messe des Mortes, also known simply as Requiem.

Originally composed to memorialize the soldiers of the French Revolution of July 1830, the piece has a long history with Symphony Hall, where it will be performed. In 1959, the Boston Symphony Orchestra recorded a version of the piece there that, in some corners, is considered to be the best yet made. This performance will follow the same mold, placing singers throughout the venue and situating four antiphonal brass ensembles at the corners of the stage to maximize the work's overwhelming sense of scope and grandeur.

Symphony Hall

Music connoisseurs and building buffs regard Symphony Hall as one of the finest concert halls in the world. Sixteen replicas of Greek and Roman statues line the walls, and its airy space lends a majestic resonance to each string pluck and unexpected sneeze. Opened in 1900, Symphony Hall was the first auditorium designed in accordance with scientifically derived acoustic principle, sloping inward to help focus the sound of the orchestra's stirring string renditions.
