Beethoven featured Oct. 23, 25
“For many music lovers and critics, Beethoven's towering Ninth symphony stands as one of the most beloved and important pieces of music ever written. Thanks to its innovations in form, content, and its use of choir and soloists, the ‘Choral’ symphony bridges the Classical and Romantic eras of music, and Schiller's ‘Ode to Joy’ still inspires listeners with its message of brotherhood and hope. From the tearing down of the Berlin wall to the honoring of warriors and statesmen, Beethoven's epic music is timeless,” according to a press release.
Directed by Mark Steighner, The Columbia Gorge Sinfonietta and Voci Choir, aided by soloists from Pacific University, will present the Beethoven Ninth on Friday, Oct. 23 at 7 pm, and Sunday, Oct. 25 at 2 p.m. Both performances will be at Wy'east Middle School's Performing Arts Center.
The orchestra is offering tickets in advance as well as at the door. Tickets are $20 for adults, and $10 for students and children and are available at cgoa.brownpapertickets.com. More information is available at gorgeorchestra.org.
