Promise to the world: The Oratorio Society of Virginia rounds out its season with MaySong featuring Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem). The large-scale work is a “true choral blockbuster” says Executive Director Rowena Pinto Zimmermann. Christina Pier (soprano) and Trevor Scheunemann (baritone) appear as guest soloists, and an encore of The World Called, an OSVA original composed by Adolphus Hailstork, which features Rita Dove’s poem “Testimonial” set to music, is also on the program.

Saturday 5/11. $10-37, 7:30pm, Old Cabell Hall, UVA. 924-3376.
