The La Jolla Symphony & Chorus is presenting a very big show this weekend — Giuseppe Verdi's "Requiem."

It requires a full chorus, a full symphony and solo vocalists. The San Diego Master Chorale and the San Diego Gay Men's Chorus will be performing along with the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus and four solo vocalists.

This powerful vocal classic is one of the final concerts for longtime La Jolla Symphony & Chorus choral director David Chase. He's been with the symphony for 43 years.

"Requiem" will be performed Friday, March 17 through Sunday, March 19 at the Mandeville Auditorium at UC San Diego.
