Many celebrations of Beethoven’s 250th birthday (December 2020) were canceled during the pandemic. A year later we celebrate the fire and passion of this master composer with some of his best-loved choral-orchestral works. Featuring the Carroll Symphony Orchestra and concert pianist Terry Lowry, we present Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy, “Hallelujah” from The Mount of Olives, and the Egmont Overture. The program also includes “A Silence Haunts Me” by Jake Runestad, a dramatic choral work based on Beethoven’s Heiligenstadt Testament—a letter he wrote expressing the despair caused by his hearing loss. This program is co-sponsored by the Griffin Area Concert Association.
