Mahler for Vision: A Concert For The Restoration of Vision

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Gustav Mahler’s Second Symphony, “Resurrection”, draws on images of rebirth and resurrection, which resonate with the experience of restored vision. The concert benefits HelpMeSee, a visionary organization using cross-sector collaborations to create large-scale, affordable, and sustainable approaches to ending cataract blindness worldwide. This initiative calls on musicians, listeners, and a global community to act to restore light and life to human beings suffering from treatable cataract blindness.
