Sun Valley Summer Symphony Music Director Alasdair Neale returns to host his popular Upbeat with Alasdair speaking series!  Titled Mahler’s Symphony No. 2: A User’s Manual, the talk will provide an in-depth preview of the summer season’s final concert, Mahler’s Symphony No. 2.

Upbeat with Alasdair provides an intimate platform for Maestro Neale to share his passion for music-making and his personal take on specific works with the community. This January’s talk will divulge how Mahler explores the various stages of the human condition, including life, death, and rebirth, in his epic Second Symphony.

The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Admission is free, but space is limited, and the event is often full. Those interested are encouraged to make reservations and arrive early. Reservations can be made by emailing [email protected] or calling the Symphony office at (208) 622-5607.

Individuals unable to attend in person will be able to watch via video livestream on the Symphony’s website at
