Beethoven 9

Our two part celebration of the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven concludes with both his revolutionary First Symphony and his iconic Ninth Symphony, whose final movement’s “Ode to Joy” sings of the brotherhood of mankind. The ESO will be joined by the North Shore Choral Society and four stellar vocal soloists in this sublime work.
