My old friend (and SF author) Somtow Sucharitkul (a/k/a S.P. Somtow), as well as being a science fiction writer, is a brilliant orchestral composer and director. He has been bringing Mahler to Thailand for some years, and now hopes to conduct a performance of Mahler’s Sixth Symphony — some people say it’s the greatest of Mahler’s symphonies, although I actually prefer the Ninth — but it costs money. He can accept Paypal.

Please help.
