Grief and loss are transformed through the power of love into joy and jubilation.

In Gustav Mahler’s Fifth Symphony, the composer delivered a heartfelt love letter to his future wife. While reaching for emotion which went beyond words, he also stepped beyond the voice-centered works of his youth and into a new realm of purely instrumental music.

But first, Maurice Ravel realizes that the society he admires has a dark side — and that its enchanting culture comes with a tragic human cost — in La Valse.

Join the FOOSA Philharmonic at the Saroyan Theatre on this epic journey from darkness into light.

Tickets are free, but they do need to be reserved at this website.
