Masterworks I: Ode to Joy
October 2 @ 2:00 pm CDT
Our 108th Season opens with Jonathan Bailey Holland’s Ode, a minimalist and hip-hop-influenced response to Ludwig van Beethoven and his 9th Symphony through a 21st-century lens. The QCSO will then bring Beethoven’s exuberant and transcendent 9th Symphony to life, featuring a full chorus led by Augustana Professor Jon Hurty and four exceptional soloists.
Tickets are currently available only in a Full or Pick-3 Masterworks Subscription or as an add-on for QCSO at the Movies or Up Close Subscribers. Tickets will go on sale to the public on May 17, 2022, at 9:00 am.
