KENNETH WOODS TAKES THE REINS OF THE COLORADO MAHLERFEST
IN FIRST SEASON AS ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, WOODS’ NIGHT-THEMED PROGRAM INCLUDES MAHLER’S SYMPHONY NO. 7
Kenneth Woods will oversee his first season as Artistic Director of the Boulder-based Colorado MahlerFest, which takes place from May 16 – 22, curating a schedule of varied events with “night” as its theme. At the core of the week-long festival is Mahler’s Symphony No. 7, sometimes referred to as “Song of the Night.” Other highlights include the US premiere of Viennese composer Kurt Schwertsik’s Nachtmusiken (“Night Music”) and Schönberg’s Verklärte Nacht (“Transfigured Night”).
