10-Year Celebration

Fisher Center's Tenth-Anniversary Celebration

2013 began the second decade of the Fisher Center, and the festivities opened in April with a monthlong celebration of the performing arts. The month-long celebration included new, rediscovered, and reimagined works from special guest artists and Bard students and faculty.

Mahler’s Second Symphony projects a powerful narrative of life over death. The monumental work builds in the final movement to a magnificent chorus that exalts the Resurrection.
