Mahler's “Symphony of a Thousand”
November 20, 2010
Lexington Symphony presents an epic performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 8 “Symphony of a Thousand” in partnership with the Nashua Symphony & Chorus, the Boston's Children's Chorus, the New World Chorale, and vocal soloists, including tenor John Mac Master, who is in demand at the highest international level and has performed at the Metropolitan Opera and Glimmerglass Opera to great acclaim. The symphony is rarely performed because it require an enormous cast of musicians, bringing together a double chorus, a children's chorus, a full orchestra, and eight soloists in a celebration of the eternal power of love. This once-in-a-lifetime event is sponsored by the Lexington Symphony Concert Fund Partners.
