Mike Marshall and Choro Famoso bring a bright energy and virtuosity to their concerts, maybe matched only by the Brazilians themselves. Choro is an important musical tradition of Brazil with characteristic Afro-Brazilian rhythms and European popular dance tunes.

In its first reunion with alumni chorus members since 2018, the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra and University Chorus join together to perform Mahler’s ‘Resurrection’ Symphony, a long-form symphony imbued with a deep reverence for Heaven and the journey to it from our mortal world. Mahler’s "Resurrection" Symphony is clearly a Beethoven’s-Ninth kind of work, albeit written sixty plus years later, and written after decades of further symphonic development by not only Beethoven, but Berlioz, Brahms, and others.
