The New York Youth Symphony led by Music Director Michael Repper had to cancel its spring concert at Carnegie Hall but in a moving display of hope, community and resilience, 71 members of the orchestra came together virtually from their isolation points across the country to perform this uplifting movement from Mahler's Symphony No. 1, "Titan".
Published on March 27, 2020, Repper and New York Youth Symphony were one of the very first ensembles to pioneer the medium of "distanced digital concerts." Their performance of this excerpt of Mahler's Symphony no. 1 garnered approximately 30,000 views in one week, and was featured in international media.
