Coming Up on Carolina Live

Greenville Symphony Orchestra: Hymn to Nature

Week of June 18, 2017

One of Gustav Mahler’s massive symphonies is the focus of this edition of Carolina Live. In a concert titled “Hymn to Nature,” the Greenville Symphony, the Women of the Greenville Chorale and the city’s young Chicora Voices join to perform Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 in d-minor. It’s a spectacular work—the kind you expect from Mahler—and it’s done in spectacular style by the musical forces from Greenville.

The guest artist is violinist Sayaka Shoji, so join us for a stirring evening of music from the South Carolina Philharmonic Orchestra.
