The LA Phil's Mahler Project concludes this week with performances of Mahler's 9th on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (a matinee performance at 2 PM). To see the project's most ambitious undertaking, get tickets for this Saturday evening's performance of Mahler's 8th Symphony "Symphony of a Thousand".
Partaking in this massive undertaking include both the LA Phil and Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, along with Los Angeles Master Chorale, Los Angeles Children's Chorus, Angeles Chorale, Pacific Chorale, Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles, Angel City Chorale, Choir of All Saints Church, Pasadena, Chorus of the Inner City Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles, Los Angeles Chamber Choir, Los Robles Master Chorale, Pasadena Pro Musica, Pasadena Master Chorale, Philippine Chamber Singers - Los Angeles, Renaissance Arts Academy, Vox Femina Los Angeles, and the National Children's Chorus.
In order to accommodate this sizable ensemble (to give you an idea of what only 300 musicians at the Disney Hall would look like, here's a clip), the performance will take place at the Shrine Auditorium. You can also see them perform live from Caracas with LA Phil Live! on February 18th.
