Symphony of a thousand
The next concert I’m singing in is Mahler’s 8th symphony – the Symphony of a Thousand. It’s Sunday Week (September 16th) at 5pm, in the Great Hall of Exeter University.
For obvious logistical reasons, this symphony isn’t often performed, so when the chance came my way I grabbed it! The group and the venue are new to me, being a bit too far away to travel for a regular evening out. Rehearsals have been a series of weekend workshops, of which this weekend will be the last before that of the concert. I’ve enjoyed it so far, and I confidently expect to enjoy the final weekend and concert. For readers in or not too far from Exeter, it should be well worth coming to see, too!
