Mahler believed that “A symphony must be like the world, it must embrace everything.” His 3rd symphony is an epic display of this concept. A huge, majestic orchestra accompanied by both children’s and women’s choruses and a mezzo soprano soloist to boot. This is a once-in-a- lifetime experience to hear this monumental work live.
