A Valentine out of season

This is a love letter to the Delaware Symphony.  The season just completed was an artistic triumph. Their performance of Mahler's Second (Resurrection)Symphony was awesome, a word I don't use lightly.  It was one of the most moving orchestral performances I've ever heard and invites comparison with the very best orchestras in the world, like the New York Philharmonic or the Boston Symphony, even though the Delaware's resources don't come close to matching those of the bigger, wealthier groups.

Residents of Delaware, do you know what a jewel you have?  Please support the orchestra, and even better, purchase a season's ticket for the upcoming season.  You'll be glad you did!
