||Symphony No. 9
“Friends, no more of these sounds. Let us sing more cheerful songs, more full of Joy!” The words of Beethoven’s Ninth could hardly be more timely, comforting and inspiring than they are right now. Courtney Lewis, a world-class quartet of soloists, the Symphony Chorus, and the Symphony point us toward the future in this most uplifting work of art. Also closing the season is the first in a multi-year series of commissions from some of today’s greatest living composers, a world premiere from the brilliant British and American composer, Tarik O’Regan.
