Sunday, May 12, 2019

7:30 p.m.

Bella Concert Hall

Under the direction of Edmond Agopian, the Calgary Youth Orchestra will perform one of the great works of the orchestral literature, Gustav Mahler’s epic 5th Symphony.  First premiered in 1904, it takes the listener on an emotional journey that includes music derived from Austrian folk music, a funeral march, and the famous Adagietto movement; a love song, dedicated to Mahler’s wife, Alma.

The concert will also include a performance by the winner of the CYO’s annual Frank Simpson Concerto Contest who will be announced in late February.
