The Boston Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO), under the direction of Conductor Benjamin Zander, concludes its 43rd season on Friday, April 8, 2022, at 8:00 PM at Symphony Hall in Boston, with Mahler’s Symphony No. 3. The orchestra will be accompanied by British-born Canadian and mezzo-soprano Susan Platts, Chorus Pro Musica, and the The Chorister of St. Paul’s Choir School, Harvard Square. The concert will be preceded by an in-person “Guide to the Music” talk by Zander at 6:45 PM; the concert will also be available for viewing via live streaming.


“In this vast and profound work for chorus, orchestra, and mezzo-soprano, you will hear it all—from exaltation to terror to union with the primal forces that surround us,” says Boston Philharmonic Conductor Benjamin Zander. “In it, Mahler set out to express the essence of his relationship to nature.”


The concert marks the BPO’s fourth performance of Mahler’s longest work; they performed it last in 2002. The piece calls for by both adult and children’s choruses, so frequent collaborator Chorus Pro Musica, a New England organization composed of more than 100 highly talented musicians selected by audition, will perform with students from The Chorister of St. Paul’s Choir School in Cambridge, one of the few specialist choirs of boys and men outside New York.


Susan Platts brings a uniquely rich and wide-ranging voice to concert and recital repertoire for alto and mezzo-soprano, particularly esteemed for her performances of Mahler's works, especially his “Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen” No. 2. She is a Fellow of the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative, which gave her the opportunity to work closely with Jessye Norman.
