Music for Life International presents

Mahler for Vision

A Concert for the Restoration of Vision for the Millions

Affected by Cataract Blindness

Monday, February 13th, 2017 at 8:00 pm

Carnegie Hall

Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage

57th Street and Seventh Avenue, New York City

Gustav Mahler Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection

George Mathew, Artistic Director and Conductor

For ONE night only, the concert will bring together musicians from the New York Philharmonic, MET Orchestra, Berlin Philharmonic, The Philadelphia Orchestra, Orchestra of St. Luke's, Minnesota Orchestra, Buffalo Philharmonic, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, and many others

Mahler’s Second Symphony, “Resurrection”, draws on images of rebirth and resurrection, which resonate with the experience of restored vision. The net proceeds from the concert will benefit HelpMeSee, a visionary organization using cross-sector collaboration to create large-scale, affordable, and sustainable approaches to ending cataract blindness worldwide.

This partnership calls on musicians, listeners, and the global community to act to restore light and life to all people suffering from treatable cataract blindness.
