The choirs, orchestras and vocal soloists of the JMU Symphony Orchestra and Chorale join forces with students from the Governor’s School of the Arts in Norfolk, Virginia, to perform Gustav Mahler’s Second Symphony, known as the Resurrection Symphony. Mahler created this powerful and philosophical work out of a profound sense of grief and loss, but transcends that darkness in a magnificent summation of renewed hope. First performed in 1895 and described as a “heart-shattering work of genius” (Classic FM), Mahler’s mighty work is brought to life in a rare performance by nearly 300 young musicians!
