It’s installment #2 of our Beethoven Countdown! Or, as it’s sometimes called by our orchestra: the Beethoven Boot Camp. This week we’re thrilled to perform a double dose of Beethoven. You’ll get to hear his Symphony No. 8 AND his final piano concerto, the “Emperor” Concerto (No. 5). We also have two Stravinsky Suites on the program. Click here to find out more about this weekend’s performance including tickets, artist bios, program info, program notes, as well as links to our Beethoven online course!
This also means it’s time for our second “Where’s Beethoven?” Contest! Post your responses below and we will randomly select a winner to receive two free tickets to our performances this Friday, September 23 and Saturday, September 24.
