Beethoven 8 + 9: Celebration
Don’t miss the powerful grand finale of 2020: The Year of Beethoven — a one-night only celebration of the composer’s final two symphonies! This intense and uncompromising music radiates love toward humankind. Orchestral forces alone could not express this feeling, so Beethoven changed the course of music history by adding voices to his ninth symphony — chorus and guest soloists join the Calgary Philharmonic in proclaiming his ode to joy.
