Location: Carnegie Hall, New York City, NY
Date: February 13, 2017

In February 2017, this concert was presented by Music for Life International in New York City’s legendary Carnegie Hall, and featured a performance of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection". Net proceeds from the concert will go to support HelpMeSee's mission to eliminate cataract blindness around the world.

Gustav Mahler's Second Symphony draws on images of rebirth and resurrection, which resonate with the experience of restored vision. This event brought together over 200 musicians, thousands of listeners, and a global community to act to restore vision and hope to all people suffering from cataract blindness.
