CWU Symphony Orchestra and Yakima Symphony Orchestra Concert
CWU Symphony Orchestra joins members of the Yakima Symphony Orchestra to present Gustav Mahler’s epic masterpiece, Symphony No. 2, the “Resurrection”, joined by the Yakima Symphony Chorus, CWU Men’s Chorus, and CWU Women’s Chorus. Mahler, not long after completing the Symphony No. 2, said, "The term 'symphony' means creating a world with all the technical means available." The Resurrection Symphony is an all-embracing work, the first of the Austrian composer's symphonies to make use of voices and words as well as the orchestra.
