PORTLAND SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA SHOWCASES MUSIC DIRECTOR DESIGNATE ROBERT MOODY IN A SPECIAL PERFORMANCE OF MAHLER'S SYMPHONY NO. 1 AT MERRILL AUDITORIUM MAY 5

PORTLAND, Maine The Portland Symphony Orchestra is presenting a special low-price, hour-long concert designed to introduce incoming Music Director Robert Moody to Portland and the southern Maine community. All seats for this Podium Prelude Concert are $25 and Maestro Moody has selected the monumental Symphony No. 1 by Gustav Mahler. The concert is on Monday, May 5 at 7:30 p.m. at Merrill Auditorium and is a "prelude" to the PSO's season finale the following night.

Deborah Galarneau, President of the PSO's Board of Trustees, said, "We are thrilled to be able to offer the community a special prelude presentation of Mahler's entire first symphony at a much-reduced price. This is a one-and-only opportunity to see a particularly powerful symphony, led by Music Director Designate Robert Moody. I hope that people who have been curious about our new Music Director will take advantage of this concert and come see him conduct."

In addition to the $25 tickets for the May 5 concert there are a limited number of $150 tickets, which include Grand Tier seating and an exclusive cocktail reception at the Cumberland Club with Robert Moody. Those tickets can be purchased by calling the PSO office at (207) 773-6128.

Moody is also conducting the "Rumba Sinfonica" Pops concerts with Tiempo Libre in late April and Independence Pops in June and July. Subscriptions for the 2008-2009 season, Moody's first as Music Director, are on sale now.

Tickets for the Podium Prelude and other PSO performances are available now through www.porttix.com, by phone at 207-842-0800, or at the PortTix box office, 20 Myrtle St., Monday through Saturday from noon to 6 p.m.
