Zelman Symphony | Mahler Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection”

Zelman Symphony | 90th Anniversary Concert
This concert will be almost exactly 90 years after the first Zelman Memorial Symphony Orchestra concert which was given in the Melbourne Town Hall on 30 September 1933. Ten years ago, to mark the 80th birthday of the Zelman Memorial Symphony Orchestra, the decision was made to present a performance of the monumental Eighth Symphony of Gustav Mahler, the “Symphony of a Thousand”.
For this, the 90th anniversary, the orchestra presents his more youthful, but perhaps even more ecstatic, Second Symphony. Set for soprano and mezzo-soprano soloists, mixed voice chorus and large orchestra (quadruple wind, organ, harps and additional off-stage trumpets, horns and percussion), Mahler’s Second Symphony demands very spacious acoustics such as those of the Melbourne Town Hall.
Zelman Memorial Symphony Orchestra is confident that you will find this performance to be truly momentous.
