ABOUT THIS CONCERT

One note is worth a thousand words in this program of spellbinding choral works with a story to tell. First, witness the wings of genius take flight in Mahler’s staggering first masterpiece, written when he was just 18—music that beckons us close to whisper ancient tales of gleaming castles, noble knights and magic flutes. Then, Goethe’s text ignites the fire of Mendelssohn’s imagination in a celebration of spring that sees Druids dance and bonfires burn.

Andrés Orozco-Estrada, conductor
