11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Unlimited mimosas, fine breakfast foods, and Britten’s War Requiem… Why not?

Canterbury’s Pre-Concert Brunch is a precursor to the November 11th WAR REQUIEM concert – in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the signing of the armistice treaty of World War I: Veteran’s Day.

Canterbury’s artistic director, Dr. Randi Von Ellefson, will give a presentation on Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem while guests dine on the Skirvin’s upscale brunch offerings and enjoy a mimosa, bloody mary and coffee bar. Dr. Ellefson’s talk will provide listeners a better understanding of the large choral-orchestral piece and how it became one of the most significant musical monuments ever composed.

Proceeds from this event will benefit Canterbury’s artistic and educational outreach opportunities, providing meaningful and life changing experiences for our adult and children’s choruses.
