Thomas Beveridge's Yizkor Requiem was premiered 19 years ago by Beveridge's New Dominion Chorale. It has had numerous performances since then, by the Chorale and other ensembles. The next performance is April 7, 2013 at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center, Northern Virginia Community College, Alexandria Campus, by the premiering ensemble. Classical WETA morning host David Ginder chatted with Tom Beveridge about the personal inspiration for his piece, other conductors' ideas about it, and realizing why composers write only one Requiem.
