Tito Muñoz conducts Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, “Titan" in performances scheduled Dec. 6-8.
The Florida Orchestra has a number of concerts on tap for December, including some of local audiences favorite classics. The upcoming schedule is as follows.

Masterworks series

Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, “Titan," conducted by Tito Tito Muñoz is Friday through Sunday, Dec. 6-8.
