Third Annual Oregon Mahler Festival: Mahler Symphony No. 3
The Oregon Mahler Festival returns with the Symphony No. 3 by Gustav Mahler under the direction of Maestro Mark Perlman. The Third Symphony is a wonderful blend of raw power and ethereal melodies, from the rich opening to a floating posthorn solo, ethereal music for women's and children choir, and elgaic melodies for our mezzo-soprano soloist.
The concert will be held on Saturday, July 29th at 7:30 PM at Lake Oswego High School, 2501 Country Club Rd in Lake Oswego. Additional information on the Oregon Mahler Festival is available at oregonmahlerfestival.org.
The Oregon Mahler Festival brings together talented musicians from all over the Portland area to perform large scale symphonic music by Mahler. The Festival is sponsored by the Willamette Falls Symphony. This is the third season, and it will continue every summer to perform all of the Mahler symphonies. Founder and Music Director Dr. Mark Perlman leads the orchestra.
A number of conductors tout themselves as "philosophers of the podium", but Mark Perlman really is one - besides his long experience as a conductor, he also has a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Arizona, and is Professor of Philosophy at Western Oregon University. He studied conducting at the University of Arizona with Dr. Leonard Pearlman, and has worked with conductors such as Jorma Panula, Markus Lehtinen, Petr Gribanov, Leonid Kochmar, Sian Edwards, Adrian Gnam, Robert Gutter, Oleg Proskurnya, Alexander Polishchuck, Murry Sidlin, Daniel Lewis, Don Thulean, and John Farrer. He has conducted orchestras in the Portland area, across the U.S., as well as internationally in Germany, Russia, Romania and Bulgaria. He was featured on Romanian television for his September 11, 2006 concert in honor of victims of terrorism. In addition to conducting the Willamette Falls Symphony since 2001, he is currently the Conductor of the Tualatin Valley Symphony and the Associate Conductor for the Hillsboro Symphony.
