ONE CITY: BEETHOVEN 9

What’s interesting about this concert:
• An annual tradition, One City invites our community to come together through music.
• Beethoven’s epic Ninth features vocal soloists, a massive choir and the famous Ode to Joy.
• This is Beethoven’s celebration of the brotherhood of humanity – a theme that resounds even to this day.
• A world premiere from CSO composer-in-residence Jonathan Bailey Holland connects Beethoven’s work to the present.
