London Symphony Orchestra and Valery Gergiev Invite the Choral Arts Society of Washington for Mahler's 8th Symphony


The Choral Arts Society of Washington, under the direction of Norman Scribner, received a rare and exciting invitation from the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus to perform Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 8 ("Symphony of a Thousand").

Conducted by Valery Gergiev, the two performances at St. Paul's Cathedral both SOLD OUT! "From under the Dome, this was a marvelously convincing and hugely powerful performance, which was both stirring and moving. The dramatic contrast between massive choral-and-orchestral textures and almost chamber-like delicacy was impressively realised. The combination of the London Symphony Chorus and the Choral Arts Society of Washington proved to be a strong one; the voices were evenly balanced and produced a full, firm sound." (Timothy Ball, Classical Source)

The performance was recorded and will be released internationally on the London Symphony Live record label.

Upon their return, Jeffrey Hart, Director of Artistic Operations for the Choral Arts Society of Washington stated, "We continue to receive wonderful feedback on the experience we all worked so hard to create in London this summer. Thank you very much for your hard work, positive attitude and love of music. It was a true pleasure working with you and I hope we get to do it again in the not too distant future".

Congratulations to the Choral Arts Society of Washington having received such a prestigious invitation to London by a great orchestra and conductor.
