The Penn Symphony concludes the semester with Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 2 or Resurrection symphony.  This epic work promises to encourage our audiences with hope and optimism.  We will also be joined by mezzo-soprano Meg Bragle (director of Collegium Musicum singers and Opera workshop at Penn) and soprano Robin Leigh Massie (voice faculty at Westminster Choir College and Cairn University) along with the distinguished Mendelssohn Chorus of Philadelphia (Dominick DiOrio, Artistic Director and Chorus Master).  Come celebrate with us this evening the joys, trials and triumphs of the human spirit!

This performance is free and open to the public.
