KC Symphony: Stern Conducts Mahler’s Third

Friday May 17, 2019 • 8 p.m. • Kauffman Center • TBA

8 p.m.

Mahler described his epic Third Symphony as “a gigantic musical poem [with] all the phases of evolution.” Scored for numerous vocalists and a huge orchestra, his Third embraces the miracles of creation, nature and humankind’s relationship with divinity. As one of the most exalted works of the symphonic repertoire, Mahler’s Third led by Music Director Michael Stern is a not-to-be-missed concert event.

It will take place at the Kauffman Center from May 17 to 19. The first two performances will be at 8 p.m., and Sunday’s will be at 2 p.m. Tickets are not yet on sale.
