Concert at Roman basilica in memory of Japanese earthquake/tsunami victims
Catholic World News - March 11, 2014
A performance of Mozart’s Requiem was scheduled at the Roman basilica of St. Paul-Outside-the-Walls on March 11, to mark the 3rd anniversary of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan in 2011, killing more than 15,000 people.
The Japanese embassy to the Holy See organized the free concert, with the cooperation of the Vatican. The Gioacchino Rossini Symphony Orchestra of Pesaro was invited to perform the Requiem, accompanied by the San Carlo choir, under the direction of Daniele Agiman.
