  • Boise Philharmonic Presents Mahler Two for 50th Season Finale

    Saturday, May 5-Sunday, May 6

      For musicians playing the work of Gustav Mahler, the Austrian composer's music can be both a technical and emotional hurdle. It doesn't make the pieces any easier, said upright bass concertist Mary Creek, when the theme surrounds the composer's death.

When Boise Philharmonic presents its Mahler performances as the finale of its 50th season, the Boise Philharmonic Master Chorale will be joined by soprano Leslie Mauldin and mezzo-soprano Michele Detwiler, with Robert Franz as conductor.
