CHORAL BEETHOVEN

BEETHOVEN MARATHON

Celebrate the OM’s 40th season with Beethoven’s nine symphonies conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin. With four concerts in three days, this is sure to be a true musical marathon! Experience the bold classics that continue to dazzle audiences 250 years later.

Each program features two or three Beethoven symphonies. You’ll also hear pieces written by the four winners of the OM’s composition competition in honour of its 40th season.

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 moves out of the darkness into the light to embody joy and universal kinship. The Orchestre will be welcoming the Chœur Métropolitain and internationally renowned Canadian soloists to the stage for an unforgettable performance. But first, the OM will bring the composer’s irreverence to life in the opening measures of Symphony No. 1. Experience Beethoven’s bookends: a promising debut and a revolutionary finale.
