In commemoration of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, the University Symphony Orchestra, with soloists, Chamber Choir, University Choir, and Orpheus Singers present the “quest for freedom” and plea for “universal brotherhood,” Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. The words of Schiller’s Ode to Joy are the inspiration for the powerful and inspiring finale.

In his Serenade to Music, for voices and orchestra, inspired by Shakespeare’s words about music in the spheres from The Merchant of Venice, Vaughan Williams has created a stunningly beautiful and powerful tribute to the powers of music and its “sweet harmony.”

PROGRAM:
Vaughan Williams- Serenade to Music
Beethoven- Symphony No. 9
