Last night the Ladies and Choristers of the choir took part in a spectacular performance of Gustav Mahler's 3rd Symphony in King's College Chapel. Paul Daniel conducted a combined Cambridge University Music Society orchestra, along with the Ladies of the choirs of Jesus, Clare, Caius and Selwyn colleges, and the Choristers of Jesus and St. Catharine's Colleges. The performance was a resounding success, and the singers relished the chance to perform one of the most distinguished symphonic works in the repertoire.
