Since his return to Manhattan last fall, Justin Bischof has been achieving impressive work in choral and orchestral concerts at the Church of the Epiphany. These have extended from masterpieces of Palestrina and Byrd to Richard Strauss’s Metamorphosen and Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony. In the course of these powerful and impeccably executed performances, he has brought together an outstanding chorus and chamber orchestra. All this, as well as around New York and in Oman, where he performs as conductor and organist several times a year.
Justin Bischof will close the season of the Friends of Music at the Epiphany with Mozart’s Requiem. This should be a moving performance, as well as a muscular, clearly defined and structured one. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear a fully-realized playing of this beloved work!
