Mahler's Fifth

The Akron Symphony Orchestra in concert, recorded live at E.J. Thomas Hall on January 18, 2020. Music Director Christopher Wilkins leads the Akron Symphony Orchestra in works from two titans of the Romantic Era with the Prelude to Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde and Mahler’s Symphony No. 5, featuring horn player Tom Park as the feature soloist during the Scherzo in Mahler 5, one of music’s greatest showpieces for the horns.

Made in America

On March 28, we presented a “virtual concert” in place of the concert that we had originally scheduled for this evening. Music Director Christopher Wilkins shared a special Preview from the Podium, followed by the music of the four originally scheduled works in various performances: Joan Tower’s Made in America, Delius’ Appalachia: Variations on an Old Plantation Song, Copland’s Appalachian Spring and Bernstein’s On the Town: Three Dance Episodes.
