Cellist Bjorn Ranheim recalls his rst experience with Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 as a member of the chorus: “This is one of the rst Mahler Symphonies
that I ever got to know as a member of the Minnesota Boychoir. Weperformed the work with the Minnesota Orchestra and Baltimore Symphony 
and I’ll never forget the power of singing the clarion tones amidst the massive
orchestral forces. To now revisit the piece by playing inside of the orchestra will be a real treat for me. Its jubilant and incredibly gorgeous melodies willstay with you forever!”
Trumpet player Mike Walk looks forward to his rst performance of a work 
seminal to his development as a musician: “In twenty years as an orchestral
musician, I’ve never yet performed this symphony—the piece that most inuenced my steps toward becoming an orchestral trumpeter. From themammoth rst movement with its dramatic trombone solos, to the lovely posthorn solo in the third movement, to the glorious chorale in the nale, it is
a fantastic world in music.”
