The American Symphony Orchestra and the Bard Festival Chorale present Antonin Dvořák’s “Requiem,” Op. 89 on Jan. 25 at Carnegie Hall.

Soprano Leah Hawkins, mezzo-soprano Lindsay Ammann, tenor Joshua Blue, and bass Stefan Egerstrom serve as soloists in one of the composer’s lesser-known choral works. They are joined by the Bard Festival Chorale led by choral director James Bagwell. American Symphony Orchestra’s Music Director Leon Botstein conducts.

Dvořák’s “Requiem” originally premiered in 1891 with the composer conducting the showcase.

The performance takes place on Stern Auditorium’s Perelman Stage at 8 p.m. The “Conductor’s Notes Q&A” starts an hour before curtain.
