Mahler: Symphony No. 8, Symphony of a Thousand

Former Music Director Christoph Eschenbach returns to conduct two spectacular evenings of music from one of his favorite composers. Mahler's Eighth Symphony is commonly referred to as the Symphony of a Thousand due to the huge number of performers required on stage. Watch in awe as more than 400 musicians, chorus members and vocal soloists join together -- complete with a special stage extension -- for a once-in-a-lifetime, powerful experience of music.
