Epic Mahler This Sunday

Bangor, ME – The Bangor Symphony Orchestra’s next Masterworks concert will take place this Sunday, January 24, 2016 at 3 p.m. at the Collins Center for the Arts. Led by Music Director and Conductor Lucas Richman, the program will feature Mahler’s sprawling, thrilling Symphony No. 1, “Titan”, with the orchestra’s largest roster of the season.

On the program’s first half, the BSO will present guest trumpeter George Vosburgh in Hummel’s famous Concerto for Trumpet in E major. Vosburgh is internationally renowned for his performances and recordings, and is currently principal trumpet of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. Richman will also present a new composition of his own on the program, titled Until the Circle is Unbroken, commissioned at the BSO’s last Symphony Soiree by Joyce Clark Sarnacki. The work colorfully illustrates the deep relationships of the Clark family siblings.

A pre-concert talk will be held at 2 p.m. before the performance at the Collins Center for the Arts. Tickets range from $19 to $45 and are available at bangorsymphony.org or by phone at (800) 622-TIXX. Student tickets are available for $13.
