“A symphony must be like the world,” said Mahler. “It must embrace everything.” Mahler’s Fifth symphony does just that, embracing a sea of sound and a world of emotion. In just over an hour, Mahler gives us laughter, grief, life, death and love so tender it defies words. From the famous opening trumpet fanfare to the jubilant finale, Mahler takes us on a journey from tragedy to triumph, with detours through storms, dances, and the exquisite experience of falling in love. This is capital-R Romantic music, chock full of feelings and ready to sweep you off your feet. 

Eric Garcia conductor

Symphony No. 5

NOTE: There is no matinee for this performance

I’ve noticed Boise Phil isn’t performing the Classics Series in Nampa. Why?

Our Classics Series performances in Nampa are paused due to low ticket sales in that region. We care deeply about the West Treasure Valley and want to ensure that our programming is accessible to all – our classroom education programs, community engagement and other special performances will continue in Nampa and across the entire West Valley.

22|23 Performances at the Brandt Center
