I’m just going to take a quick minute and tell you all about the upcoming Mahler performance.
Last semester, the Mount Union Concert Choir got a chance to sing with the Canton Symphony Orchestra. We sang Haydn’s theresienmesse with the symphony during its February performance. It was awesome!! Six awesome movements, beautiful music … and that was my first year ever on the first soprano part. Talk about improving my range!
We did a fantastic job and we got a lot of praise for how prepared we were. Not to mention, it was an incredible experience. Not many people can say they’ve sung with a symphony orchestra. And, Canton’s ranks third in Ohio.
Along those same lines, not many people can say they’ve sung with a symphony orchestra TWICE.
After last year’s performance, the Mount Union Concert Choir was invited back to sing with Canton Symphony Orchestra. Coming up on November 4, we’re going to be performing Mahler’s second symphony.
This is an amazing piece of work. Mahler, when he wrote this, was thinking a lot about life and death, and those themes are beautifully constructed into the music we’re singing. It’s such powerful music, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.
It’s not too late to come see it if you have nothing to do at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, November 4. Ticket information can be found online at http://cantonsymphony.tix.com/ScheduleSubscriptions.asp?OrganizationNumber=1627.
The progress this choir has made in the last two years and the opportunities we’ve had have truly made the last couple of years at Mount Union pretty exceptional.
