A Parting Opus

Presented by Kentucky Symphony Orchestra at NKU Greaves Concert Hall, Newport KY

Jan 29 2022
A Parting Opus

Saying Farewell Through Words and Music

The KSO returns to the venue of its very first concert in 1992 — Greaves Concert Hall (NKU) — for Gustav Mahler’s final complete composition — his Symphony No. 9. It is a poignant musical farewell with the recent loss of his 7-year-old daughter and his own fatal heart condition diagnosis no doubt influencing Mahler’s reflective and highly regarded work. The KSO has offered commissions to U.S. Poet Laureates to write poetry inspired by Mahler’s 9th Symphony. As a reflective summation of their own lives and works, these original poems will be juxtaposed with the KSO’s performance of Mahler’s parting opus.

ADMISSION INFO

$35 each, with two ways to enjoy performances — in person or via live stream! Available now. $20 Student Rush tickets are available at the door, an hour before each concert.
