Beethoven - Symphony No. 9
Ludwig Van Beethoven’s final symphony, Ode To Joy, weaves together themes of brother and sisterhood into a powerful and sweeping chorus widely considered the most recognizable musical work ever written. Featuring the MSO Chorus and four spectacular local soloists, this concert captures Beethoven’s vision of hope with power and authenticity. Whether you’re a serious classical music lover, or new to the symphony, this is one piece you definitely won’t want to miss.
