Local Spotlight: San Luis Obispo Symphony

Posted: Updated:

Saturday night, the San Luis Obispo Symphony wraps up its season with its fifth "Classics in the Cohan" concert.

The orchestra will perform a monumental work: Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 2 in C minor, also known as the "Resurrection."

Mezzo soprano Jacalyn Kreitzer is one of the featured singers. As she explains, the work consists of five movements: the first three are full of angst and anger, the fourth movement is a sort of statement of faith, then a rousing choral finale rounds out the fifth.

"Gustav Mahler himself wrote the words to part of the mezzo solo in the fifth movement," Kreitzer explains. She points to one of the messages:

"'Believe for you will live again, you have not lived in vain' and then, finally, he says, 'you will come to see the light that has never been seen,'" she says.

The concert features 160 chorus members -- Cal Poly students as well as members of the San Luis Obispo Master Chorale.

The concert begins at 8 o'clock at the PAC in San Luis Obispo. For tickets and more information, click here.
