2022-2023 SEASON

Mahler's First

Jim Rouse Theatre

Saturday, May 21, 2022 - 7:30 p.m.


Mahler's towering and melodic First Symphony is a love letter to nature, life, and love itself -- the perfect way to round out this season's return to the stage! Our concert starts with Gabriela Ortiz' music inspired by the spirit of Mexican dance halls, before the young virtuosos of our Young Artist Competition dazzle you with their age-defying abilities.
