Making of Defiant Requiem

We’ll talk to Murry Sidlin about his inspiration for a multimedia piece that combines Verdi’s Requiem with the story of its performance by Jews in a Nazi concentration camp. Then we’ll take you behind the scenes to see Murry, the Oregon Symphony and the Portland Opera Chorus prepare for the performance.
