Dunedin Arts Festival: Beethoven’s Big Bash

Come and hear a feast of Beethoven’s most popular music performed by Dunedin’s most talented musicians. For this belated celebration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday, the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra will be joined by community orchestral and choral musicians of all ages and skill levels.

The massed orchestra and choir will perform a specially arranged version of Ode to Joy, the last movement from Beethoven’s ninth Symphony. Also in the programme will be four of the University of Otago’s outstanding music students performing Beethoven’s Romance No. 2 and his Piano Concerto No. 3 (each soloist playing one movement).

Since 1966, the DSO has been presenting a wide range of orchestral masterpieces featuring international and New Zealand conductors and soloists, and has a proud tradition of providing a comprehensive range of educational projects to nurture players at all levels.
