CCM Orchestra Series: Mahler Symphony #3 comes to CET Arts June 10th

 

CET, your Greater Cincinnati PBS station, is proud to present another local arts program on CET Arts – The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music’s Orchestra Series: Mahler Symphony #3 in D Minor.

 

Recorded in March, this performance was part of CCM’s day-long Mahler Marathon, which featured performances of Gustav Mahler’s Third and Four Symphonies and other selections by the CCM Philharmonia and Concert Orchestras. CCM Director of Orchestral Studies Mark Gibson conducted the entire “marathon” performance.

 

“The Third and Fourth Symphonies of Mahler outline the progress of humankind from earthly life to heavenly life,” Gibson explains. “I, along with 300 gifted student performers in our orchestras and choruses, look forward to sharing this unique spiritual and sonic journey with the Cincinnati public.”

 

This performance of Mahler’s Third Symphony features the CCM Philharmonia joined by the UC Women’s Chorus, Xavier University’s Women’s Chorus and the Cincinnati Children’s Choir Con Brio.

 

CCM Orchestra Series: Mahler Symphony #3 will be broadcast at 8pm Monday, June 10, on CET Arts.

 

CCM’s Mahler Marathon is dedicated to the memory of loyal arts patron and UC alumna Louise Dieterle Nippert with the support of The Louise Dieterle Nippert Musical Arts Fund and Macy’s.
