Christopher Zimmerman

The final concerts of the season by the Fairfax Symphony are Saturday and Sunday, May 14 and 15, 2011. Saturday's concert (at 8) is at George Mason University's Center for the Arts; Sunday afternoon's concert (at 3) is at the new Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas. Music Director Christopher Zimmerman has chosen Mahler's Symphony No. 2, "Resurrection" to conclude the season, and to participate in the many observances of the composer's birth and death anniversaries (last year and this year). Joining the FSO are mezzo-soprano Janine Hawley, soprano Jeanine Thames, the Fairfax Choral Society, and the Reston Chorale. Classical WETA morning host David Ginder chats with Mo. Zimmerman about the joys and challenges of addressing everything as Mahler did, and about the overwhelming satisfaction of hearing and performing his music.
