Season Finale

Mahler’s Symphony of a Thousand

Fri Jun 10 — Sun Jun 12, 2022

Orchestra Hall

~1.5 hrs

It doesn’t get any bigger than this. Four choirs, eight soloists, and an orchestra of epic proportions come together for a season finale and one final celebration of departing Music Director Osmo Vänskä. Mahler’s Eighth Symphony, known as the Symphony of a Thousand, is one of the most ambitious choral symphonies that exists today. Join all of us for a grand conclusion to this historic season as we wish our music director farewell.

A Few Things to Know

  • This performance is part of the Mahler Recording Project, our ongoing initiative to record all ten Mahler symphonies with Music Director Osmo Vänskä. With a week of recording following these concerts, the Orchestra will have nearly completed the ten-part project, with a future recording date in the works for the final installment, Mahler’s Symphony No. 3.
  • These concerts will go into history as one of the largest-scale performances ever conducted by Osmo Vänskä at Orchestra Hall.
