San Antonio Symphony Concludes Season With Mahler
The San Antonio Symphony rounds out the 2012-13 season with the epic Third Symphony by Gustav Mahler. Joining them are the women of the San Antonio Mastersingers, the Children's Chorus of San Antonio, and mezzo-soprano Dana Beth Miller.
Music Director Sebastian Lang-Lessing discusses the work in the video below, in which he reminds us this symphony is perhaps the longest in the standard repertoire. There is also a last minute substitution, Vance Woolf will play the posthorn solo, as principal trumpeter John Carroll is ill.
The concerts are tonight and Saturday at 8pm in the Majestic Theatre.
