ently the Augusta Symphony, together with the Augusta Choral Society, presented two performances of Verdi's Requiem. They, together with their sponsors, gave the Central Savannah River Area a musical experience of the first magnitude.
It was hard to believe that a city the size of Augusta could present such a professional performance. One could easily have imagined himself in New York or some other large city. These tired old eyes filled with tears several times during the performance.
I understand that their season will open in the fall with Brahms German Requiem. I will certainly be looking forward to that performance.
