Season Debut: Beethoven's Ninth/Masterworks 1

  • Overview

    Joseph Giunta and the Orchestra are joined by a soaring choir in Beethoven’s joyful anthem for humanity

    Our 83rd season opens with the heroic trumpet call of Beethoven’s Leonore Overture and the meditative, ringing resonance of Pärt’s Fratres. Janice Chandler-Eteme makes a memorable return singing Wagner’s passionate Liebestod. Finally, the Orchestra is joined onstage by two choirs and four soloists for Beethoven’s landmark Ninth Symphony. You’ll be swept off your feet as the Orchestra is joined by a soaring chorus singing the immortal, triumphant “Ode to Joy.”
