importance to Colorado MahlerFest. We will continue to
add material, so check back often.

In Mahler's day, conductors and composers were
honored by the presentation of a laurel wreath, and
Mahler's orchestra presented him with a wreath in
appreciation of his Sixth Symphony. In the same
spirit, Maestro Olson was awarded a laurel wreath in
2003 by the Colorado MahlerFest Orchestra at the
conclusion of MahlerFest XVI, during which Mahler's
Sixth Symphony was the featured work.
Die MahlerFest Familien
We frequently have family members participating in
various aspects of MahlerFest at the same time. See
our most recent “Mahler
Familien” based on our last festival held
in May, 2012.
