Bach’s Six Brandenburg Concertos are widely regarded as some of the finest compositions of the Baroque period. Each virtuosic concerto is crafted with a unique combination of instruments, showcasing the popular musical styles during Bach’s lifetime.

Join us as Boise Phil’s Allison Emerick, Del Parkinson, and Brendan Shea take center stage for the famous Concerto No. 5.

The Boise Phil Master Chorale joins the Boise Phil to perform Mozart’s transcendental Requiem. Left incomplete at the time of Mozart’s death on December 5, 1791, it is arguably one of his most famous works, delving into the themes of life and death and featuring some of the most emotionally moving music ever composed.

The Latin hymn ‘Ave Verum Corpus’ has been set to music by some of classical music’s most beloved composers. Mozart’s setting, like his Requiem, was composed in the final year of his life and is a breathtaking five-minute work that elevates the Latin chant to a divine status.
