BEETHOVEN                              Symphony No. 9, Choral; “Ode to Joy”

 

The Symphony’s April concert 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.”
