This collaborative concert spotlights a trio of San Diego State University's top musical ensembles, including the orchestra, Aztec Concert Choir and the Wind Symphony, performing a thoughtful collection of works around the theme of Awakenings at College Avenue Baptist Church. Nature, romance, faith and redemption are all addressed through pieces like Mendelssohn's ode to the natural beauty of Scotland, Hebrides Overture, and Mahler's Symphony No. 5 in C minor, inspired by his devotion to his fiance Alma. The show also features mythic odes from Wagner and John Mackey, and builds to a fitting finale with the orchestra and choir coming together on Poulenc's magnificent Gloria.
