Our inaugural composer-in-residence, Elizabeth Ogonek, opens this finale celebration with a grand fanfare, co-commissioned with the Boston Symphony for the Tanglewood Festival. Then, Gustav Mahler’s titanic Fifth Symphony brings the season to a triumphant close. “A symphony must be like the world, it must embrace the world,” Mahler once said, and this closing concert embraces the community of artists and music lovers that make the Lakes Area Music Festival possible.
COVID safety protocols for the summer season will be adjusted accordingly as the season approaches and communicated to all ticket holders.
This weekends performances are sponsored in part by Bercher Design and Construction, Cragun's Resort and Legacy Golf Courses, and Sourcewell.
