Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony Thu, May 24, 8 pm at the Meyerhoff Fri, May 25, 8 pm at the Meyerhoff Sat, May 26, 8 pm at Strathmore Always a special event, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony reminds us of the triumphs of man, with its journey from darkness to light culminating in the uplifting, ecstatic “Ode to Joy.” A stellar cast of soloists joins forces with the Baltimore Choral Arts Society under the direction of Peter Oundjian.
