Haydn: Symphony No. 88
Mahler: Symphony No. 5
Our final concert of the season features Mahler’s monumental Fifth Symphony. This iconic work, with its characteristic mix of joy and upheaval, speaks to the uncertainties of our times. It also includes the exquisite Adagietto, a musical love letter to his wife that will touch your heart. We’ve paired Mahler’s masterpiece with Haydn’s Symphony No. 88, one of his most buoyant and popular symphonies.

"Mahler's Fifth is an incredible workout for the orchestra. Within its first 10 minutes you hear the true mettle of the band and a hint of the excitement of sound that awaits you." -Michael Grose, Principal Tuba
