CSO at Ravinia: Marin Alsop conducts Mahler 8

  • Ravinia Festival 200 Ravinia Park Road Highland Park, IL, 60035 United States (map)

The huge “Symphony of a Thousand” requires no less than 24 brass players, four harps, a glockenspiel and an organ, two SATB choirs and a children’s choir, and eight vocal soloists. The roster of soloists would be hard to beat anywhere in the world, and includes the return of soprano Jeanine De Bique who gave one of VAC’s favorite performances in 2018 with pianist Rabecca Pacheco.
