On July 23, instrumentalists of the Yale Philharmonia and the Central Conservatory, along with the CCOM Chorus and Yale alumni vocal soloists began their rehearsals for Mahler’s Symphony No. 2. These preparations took place in a spacious rehearsal room below ground in the spectacular National Center for the Performing Arts. All of these forces were under the direction of the music director of CCOM’s EOS Orchestra, Yongyan Hu.

During a break at the rehearsal, the musicians were greeted by  Dean Robert Blocker of the Yale School of Music and by CCOM’s President Cizhao Wang.
