Malher For Vision

 

* Location & Date: Carnegie Hall New York City, USA

This concert will be presented by Music for Life International in New York City’s legendary Carnegie Hall, and will feature a performance of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection," with proceeds to benefit HelpMeSee.

Gustav Mahler's Second Symphony draws on images of rebirth and resurrection, which resonate with the experience of restored vision.  This event brings together musicians, listeners, and a global community to act to restore light and life to all people suffering from treatable blindness.

Net proceeds will support HelpMeSee's mission to eliminate cataract blindness around the world.
