Join the New York Choral Society for three glorious performances and a recording of Gustav Mahler’s “Resurrection Symphony”
Mexico City: July 12-19, 2010
In mid-July 2010 the New York Choral Society (NYCS) and Music Director John Daly Goodwin will embark on an exciting and ambitious project to perform and record Gustav Mahler’s Second Symphony, or “Resurrection,” in Mexico City. These performances will be part of the two year Mahler project of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Minería (OSM), Carlos Miguel Prieto, Music Director (a 2009 Grammy nominee).
In 2010 and 2011 all the Mahler symphonies will be performed and recorded by Maestro Prieto and the OSM in the spectacular 2,000 seat Sala Nezahualcóyotl on the campus of Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México – a UNESCO World Heritage site. The NYCS has already been invited to return to Mexico City in August 2011 to join the OSM and several Mexican and American choirs for the spectacular conclusion of this project with three performances of the Mahler Eighth, or “Symphony of a Thousand.”
