The “Requiem in D Minor” was Mozart’s final composition. He died before completing it. Miller said, “It’s a beautiful work, full of passion and intricacy. We are very excited to be performing it in the Wilkes Family Chapel at University Point. The chapel is not only visually beautiful but the acoustics are stunning.”
