Life, death, and rebirth.  Mahler’s modest ambition to express the totality of the human condition journeys through love, hope, nostalgia, humor, despair, a face-melting shriek of death, and finally a glorious resurrection.  Does it succeed?  Alasdair Neale recalls his first hearing at age 13:  “It rocked my world – I had never imagined music could have that level of visceral, emotional impact.” 

Something this powerful deserves a User’s Manual. Join Music Director Alasdair Neale for this exciting evening of discussion and insight!
