DePauw University Orchestra
Orcenith Smith, music director
Sunday, October 30, 2016, at 3 p.m.
Green Center, Kresge Auditorium

The focus of the DePauw University Orchestra concert for ArtsFest 2016: "Art and Utopia" will be on creating another world of sound through performance of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 1. In the Mahler family, Gustav was the second of 14 children. Many of his siblings did not survive. His father often browbeat his mother, and his Jewish heritage counted against him at many turns in his life.

Ultimately finding a highly respected career as an opera conductor, he turned to writing symphonies during his summers in the Alps. It was here, in these symphonic soundscapes, that he found escape. As Mahler stated, "composing a symphony means, to me, building a new world with every available technical means." For him, as well, this world of nature and the sounds of his heritage were juxtaposed in a symphonic world of good vs. evil. His first vision of symphonic utopia finds its voice in his Symphony No. 1.

General admission: $5
