Beethoven @ 250

Join the Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra in welcoming new Music Director David Glover as we kick off our two-season celebration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday with his immortal Symphony No. 5.

Written at a time of increasing deafness and personal turmoil for the great composer, this symphony expresses the capacity of the human spirit to overcome adversity. From the opening four-note “fate” motive, to the blazingly triumphant finale, Beethoven takes us on one of the most memorable musical journeys ever created.

Also showcased will be the talents of award winning pianist Stephen Beus who joins the orchestra for Beethoven’s dazzling Piano Concerto No. 5, Emperor.  Beus won first prize in the Gina Bachauer International Piano Compeition, the Vendome Prize International Competition in Lisbon, and was awarded the Max I. Allen Fellowship of the American Pianists Association in Indianapolis.
