Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony
October 14, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony No. 9 in D minor
Ken Lam conducts the CSO in a monumental performance of Beethoven’s final complete symphony, the Ninth, featuring the “Ode to Joy” movement with the CSO Chorus, Charleston Southern University Concert singers, and four guest soloists. This symphony will leave you breathless with excitement, whether you’re hearing it for the first time or returning to hear it as a familiar favorite!
It’s perfectly paired with Richard Strauss’ Metamorphosen, a beautiful orchestral piece Strauss composed in response to the brutal Nazi regime and destruction of the opera houses during WW2.
