Ode to Joy: Beethoven's Ninth Symphony
-at the Gaillard Center
Ken Lam conducts the CSO in a monumental performance of Beethoven's final complete symphony, the Ninth, featuring the "Ode to Joy" movement with the CSO Chorus, College of Charleston Concert Choir, Charleston Southern University Concert Singers, and four guest soloists. This symphony will leave you breathless with excitement, whether you're hearing it for the first time or returning to hear it as a familiar favorite!
It's perfectly paired with Richard Strauss' Metamorphosen, a beautiful orchestral piece Strauss composed in response to the brutal Nazi regime and destruction of the opera houses during WW2.
