My favorite Winter Carnival event this year is easily the Saint Paul Civic Symphony’s “Mozart ‘Requiem’ Community Sing-Along”.  What’s not to love about singing along to a death march in Latin!  This free concert is being held at the Landmark Center.  So, it’s time to learn some lyrics and practice singing along.  I found the lyrics with English translation HERE, and you can watch the video below for music to practice along!

Besides the Requiem sing-along, the SPCS will be performing Stravinsky’s Greeting Prelude (or as I like to call it, “Happy Birthday”)

and Tchaikovsky’s Theme & Variations (from Suite No. 3).

I have always found it harder to appreciate concerts when I don’t know the music, so if I expect my children to sit through something for adults, I start playing the music for at least weeks before we go.  Now is the perfect time to start that.

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
