Mahler Symphony No. 1: more photos

LIF_JRW_MAHLER_ORCHESTRA_DETAIL.JPG

Young musicians don’t usually get the star treatment in the newspaper — that honor is most often reserved for high school and college students who demonstrate prowess with a football, not a bassoon — so it’s my pleasure in Sunday’s Spotlight section to devote four pages (including the cover) to the 150 elite musicians taking part in tonight’s massive Mahler concert at the Saroyan Theatre. The combined Fresno State Symphony Orchestra and the Fresno Youth Philharmonic (part of the Youth Orchestras of Fresno) will perform under the baton of Thomas Loewenheim. We didn’t have room in the paper for all the nice shots that Bee photographers John Walker and Darrell Wong took for the story, so I thought I’d post some here. Enjoy!
