Penn State’s Ivyside Pride Choir is joining IUP University Choir to perform Verdi’s Requiem - here known as the “The Defiant Requiem.”
“The signature concert of The Defiant Requiem Foundation, Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezín, tells the story of the courageous Jewish prisoners in the Theresienstadt Concentration Camp (Terezín) during World War II who performed Verdi’s Requiem while experiencing the depths of human degradation.”
This story is heartbreaking, yet inspiring, as it shows the absolute resilience of humankind.
