Few pieces in the history of music have achieved the iconic power and reputation of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. Beethoven at his best —the ultimate 5th Symphony is one of the most popular and well known pieces in classical music. For more than 200 years, this symphony has shown us that music has the power to transform the way we live and think. Also on the program is a special world premiere from our very own MSO musician and composer, John Hillebrandt.
Join Music Director, David Lockington, from 7:00 pm–7:30 pm before the concert for a fun conversation including little known facts about the composers and repertoire for a more in-depth concert experience. Admission is free with your concert ticket.
