Beethoven's Ninth to be performed

 

Last updated 5/3/2007 at Noon



FALLBROOK — The Fallbrook Music Society warmly invites all music-lovers to experience Beethoven’s first and last symphony – the magnificent Ninth Symphony – at a special gala concert on Sunday, May 6. Maestro Jon Robertson will conduct the Redlands Symphony Orchestra in this inspirational masterpiece that celebrates the potential of mankind.

This popular event, whose unique choral finale includes the famous “Ode to Joy,” features more than 120 singers, plus four soloists. “This work of great optimism is one of the cornerstones of European music and it will inspire concertgoers with optimism and great hopefulness,” said Brenda Montiel, president of the Music Society.

Today, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 is recognized as one of the world’s greatest achievements, having been used countless times to underscore momentous occasions such as the fall of the Berlin wall. The European Union selected the last movement as its official anthem in 1986 and it has become a symbol for the understanding between nations.

This not-to-be-missed experience represents the final concert of Fallbrook Music Society’s 29th season and will take place on May 6 at 3 p.m. at the Bob Burton Center for the Performing Arts, 2400 South Stage Coach Lane, Fallbrook. At 2:30 p.m., Conductor Robertson will give a preview of the upcoming concert; the preview is open to all ticket-holders.
