    Congratulations, Marcelo! Good luck to you and the GRS on your collaboration!

  • Catherine-Grace Patrick says:

    My sincere congratulations, Marcelo! You are the same age that Mahler was when he arrived in Vienna (in April 1897) to begin his decade that would be historically celebrated as the City of Music’s “Golden Era”.

    May your accomplishments be many and may you fill the hearts of the good people of Grand Rapids with the splendor of a music that will long be remembered for its magnificence! -What a pleasure to hear this grand news …. and I send my very best wishes, Maestro, for your boundless success.
