How to Catch “Mahleria”

date Sunday, 16 October 2011 time 3 p.m.

Jason McCool


In a calloused, commercialized world, Gustav Mahler’s music carries the potential to restore both our shared humanity and our capacity to experience beauty. Mahler’s music, which presaged the tumult of the 20th century and which sells out concert halls today, addresses the BIG questions: life, death, comedy, tragedy, religion, community and the individual. Aimed at an audience of non-musicians, this seminar will delve deeply (but with technical “kid gloves”) into Mahler’s profound compositions and lasting influence.

Join Mahler fanatic Jason McCool for an afternoon lecture that will send your spirits soaring at Sova, then follow him over to Atlas Performing Arts Center to hear the Capital City Symphony, for DISCOUNTED TICKETS FOR ALL KCDC ATTENDEES (From $25 down to $10), They will be preforming Mahler’s 1st Symphony, a perfect musical introduction to the composer you’ll learn about the hour before.
