The Fairfax Choral Society, with Artistic Director Douglas Mears, and the Reston Chorale with Artistic Director David Brian Lang, join the FSO in a performance of Mahler's spectacular Symphony No.2, "Resurrection." A step beyond Beethoven's 9th, "Resurrection" is a musical journey which speaks of the human condition in all its complexities and paradoxes and touches on the nature of existence, religion, and the afterlife. According to Zimmerman," only Mahler could embrace such an ambitious agenda and succeed in producing one of the most exciting, beautiful and exultant works that has yet been written." This performance has been generously underwritten by Altria.
