Mahler at Pacific is an innovative program that pairs talented high school musicians with members of the University of the Pacific Symphony. They rehearse side-by-side over a weekend and receive coachings from the Conservatory faculty. The program is free. Participants are selected by audition. The next edition will take place on Saturday and Sunday, January 19-20, 2019 and will be dedicated to Mahler's extraordinary Sixth Symphony, the "Tragic."
