The UMD Symphony Orchestra celebrates its spring return with Gustav Mahler’s “Resurrection Symphony,” recognized by BBC Music Magazine as one of the greatest symphonies of all time. Mahler’s transcendent masterwork, which clocks in at over eighty minutes, grapples with the meaning of life and death while culminating in redemption. Reminiscent of a funeral march, it took Mahler a period of seven years to compose all five of the movements of this epic. The final movement and centerpiece of the symphony is a beautiful choral work that will feature the UMD Concert Choir along with soloists Rehanna Thelwell, mezzo-soprano, and Amber Monroe, soprano, who are both Cafritz Young Artists with the Washington National Opera at the Kennedy Center.
