San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) October 30, 2011
An incredible afternoon of free live music, presented to the community, right here in Marin.
Mahler originally conceived the symphony as a tone poem, loosely connected to the 1801 novel, Titan, by Jean Paul Richter. Contrary to popular belief, “Titan” does not refer to the size of the orchestra. Rather, it had a literary connection to Richter’s Romantic ideal that man is condemned to endure an earthly life but whose real home is a higher, unselfish world.
The Kanbar Center is proud to present this award-winning community orchestra that has provided dedicated volunteer musicians the opportunity to rehearse and perform orchestral repertoire.
The program will begin with an introductory talk by Mill Valley Philharmonic Director, Laurie Cohen, followed by performance.
Please stay and join us for a chance to meet the musicians in the lobby directly following the symphony.
There will be no intermission.
