Choir of the Earth presents: Mahler Symphony No. 8
This event has been and gone.
Choir of the Earth presents Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 8 in E-flat, for double chorus, children’s chorus, soloists, orchestra, and organ: a Concert Performance in aid of the Conservatorio Gustav Mahler de Irapuato, Salamanca, Mexico. We believe Choir of the Earth is the only choir in the world which has rehearsed and recorded this remarkable music in 2021. On Saturday 22 January 2022 at 18:00 GMT, after 12 months of work, John Warner will conduct over 1,000 separate voices, a children’s choir, a full orchestra and soloists in a unique performance of the complete Mahler 8.

Choir of the Earth
Choir of the Earth has been a great success since its establishment in 2020, and its popularity continues to grow.
