Come and Sing: Mozart's Requiem


Jan 27 2018 10:30 - 19:00


To kick off the musical calendar for 2018, Singing for Syrians is back with another 'Come & Sing' ! This time the featured work is Mozart's iconic Requiem, written at the end of his life and loved by singers and audiences the world over. Everyone is welcome to come and sing this fabulously dramatic piece - all you need to do is buy, borrow or hire a copy of the BARENREITER URTEXT - edition of the Mozart Requiem vocal score. If you have the Novello, (Sussmayr edition) we can also cope. PLEASE NOTE - copies WILL NOT be available on the day.

This year our esteemed conductor is David Wordsworth, who lead our 'Come & Sing' last January, at which we performed Howard Goodall's 'Eternal Light'. David is perhaps best known as Music Director of the Addison Singers, but is also Associate Director of the Brandenburg Choral Festival of London for 2018 and has conducted choirs of all kinds in many parts of the world.

Under his tutelage, the come and sing is sure to be a wonderfully rewarding and exciting experience, with the cost of the tickets going to the Hands Up Foundation (no.1156491), which supports GP salaries, prosthetic limb clinics, and teacher salaries in and around Syria.

On the day, make sure you bring a packed lunch (or the willingness to go out and buy one), and all your friends and family for the performance in the evening! The Come and Sing will take place between 10.30am and 5pm, with an informal concert at the end between 6pm and 7pm.

We hope to see you there!


The Hands Up Foundation is a young and innovative charity which was set up by four British friends. Inspired by our time in Damascus, we want to remind our friends in Syria that they have not been forgotten. Check here for any of our events.
