The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera will be opening its 2014/15 Barnett & Company Masterworks Series with a performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony on Thursday, September 11 at 7:30pm at the Tivoli Theatre. The CSO musicians, conducted by Music Director Kayoko Dan, will be joined by the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Chorus, under the direction of Darrin Hassevoort, the Lee University Chorale, under the direction of William Green, plus guest soloists Rosella Ewing, Pamela Hinchman, Daniel Weeks, and Peter Volpe.
Arguably one of the most famous classical works, Beethoven’s 9th, also known as the “Choral” Symphony, is best known for its famous melody to the poem “Ode to Joy.”
Also performed on this transcendent program will be Charles Ives’ best-known work, The Unanswered Question, and a choral piece by modern composer Ola Gjeilo, titled Across the Vast, Eternal Sky. For complete concert information, visit www.chattanoogasymphony.org.
