Masterworks I: Beethoven Symphony No. 1
October 4, 2020 @ 2:00 pm CDT
Our Celebration of Beethoven’s 250th Birthday begins with the dramatic and heroic Coriolan Overture, before being swept away by Jessie Mongomery’s Banner, a Rhapsody on the Star-Spangled Banner. Find peaceful reflection in George Walker’s somber and beautiful Lyric for Strings. The concert concludes with Beethoven’s spirited and victorious first symphony.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Sunday Shuttle Bus Service has been suspended for Masterworks I through III.
