Concerts & Events

The 2022–23 line-up is a smorgasbord of musical styles. By broadening the usual orchestral palette, these programs offer a greater range of expression, more opportunities for storytelling, and a heightened sense of discovery. A telling irony is that much of the aesthetic diversity comes from a single country: America. Several works examine the idea of Americanness through the contrasting perspectives of their composers.

Mahler Third

Mahler’s Third

April 15, 2023 at 7:30 pm
E.J. Thomas Hall, 198 Hill Street
Akron, OH 44325 United States
+ Google Map

Mahler’s Third is his “Pastoral Symphony.” It seems propelled throughout by nature’s bold power. The opening march represents the arrival of spring in the Austrian Alps—the earth groans, giant ice sheets crack, and cataracts spill forth from mountain streams. The middle movements move in stages up the Great Chain of Being, from raw matter, through many varieties of forms of life, and ultimately to the realm of the spirit.
