Witness one of the most ambitious pieces of classical music, Gustav Mahler’s 'Symphony of a Thousand', live in Singapore. Featuring no less than eight local and international vocal soloists, four large choirs (including three from Australia), a children’s choir, large symphony orchestra, separate brass ensemble and an organ, this is only the second time the symphony is being performed in Singapore. 

The monumental piece starts with a medieval Pentecost hymn and culminates in the closing scene of Goethe’s Faust, drawing together fundamental philosophical ideas of Western history. In light of SG50, come and experience this immensely moving and spectacular symphony, which Mahler wrote as a 'gift to the entire nation'.
