You might think that medical professionals do not have an artistic side, but this event will prove that the opposite is true. This weekend, the Texas Medical Center Orchestra will perform Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 3 at Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. Support the orchestra and see why the Texas Medical Center Orchestra is just the right medicine on May 11th at 6:00 p.m.!
The Orchestra’s Founder and Artistic Musical Director, Libi Lebel, has a remarkable talent and growing reputation for leading the award-winning orchestra through challenging and varied programs. Now, she presents Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 3. Symphony No. 3 was composed between 1893 and 1896. It is the longest symphony in the standard repertoire and was voted one of the ten greatest symphonies of all time in a survey of conductors carried out by BBC Music Magazine.
The Symphony supposedly details everything that the composer had learned about life to date. The movements of the piece are devoted to various living and ethereal beings and include “What the Flowers of the Field Tell Me,” “What the Animals of the Forest Tell Me,” “What Man Tells Me,” “What the Angels Tell Me,” and “What Love Tells Me.” These notions guided the composer through the creative process but were deleted after the work’s premiere.
Texas Medical Center Orchestra, 2016-17 winners and 2017-18 second place finalists of the American Prize in Orchestral Performance, are one of the finest community orchestras in the nation. Established in 2000, TMCO is one of the very few orchestras with its origin in the health professions. Most of the members are health professionals who have a dedication to music that goes beyond their daily occupations. The mission of the orchestra is to provide fellowship for its members, contribute culturally to the community, and raise awareness for medical and other local charities through its concerts and other events.
