Marin Symphony presents Masterworks 3: Songs of Destiny featuring Alsadair Neale, conductor, Marin Symphony Chorus, and Stephen McKersie. Songs of Destiny features your Marin Symphony and Marin Symphony Chorus, performing masterpieces by Brahms and Elgar. You will not want to miss the unmatched power, joy, and beauty of 200 instrumentalists and singers live on stage - there's nothing like it! 

The concert begins with performances of Brahms' Nänie and Schicksalslied with the orchestra joined by the Marin Symphony Chorus. These are absolutely gorgeous works by a great master of choral writing, covering a huge range of human emotion and experience. 

The concert concludes with a performance of Edward Elgar's magisterial First Symphony. Best known for his Pomp and Circumstance marches and Enigma Variations, Edward Elgar was a not only a composer of enormous passion and imagination, but also a true master of composing for a large symphony orchestra. One of Maestro Alasdair Neale's personal favorites, Elgar's First Symphony is a generous and noble work, with a breathtakingly beautiful slow movement.
