Something Uplifting

KSO to perform Beethoven's Ninth Need a lift for your spirit? Then head out to the Gilmore Car Museum, in Hickory Corners, on Aug. 14 to hear the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra perform the final concert in its summer Centennial Celebration. The concert will include Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, with the uplifting Ode to Joy. This outdoor concert, which will feature guest soloists and local singers, begins at 8 p.m. and is a re–creation of a 1962 program performed by the KSO that also includes works by Aaron Copland and Mussorgsky. The second half is dedicated to Beethoven's Ninth. Considered by many to be his greatest work, the piece is one of the first choral symphonies. Tickets are $25–$100, and concessions will be available. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit kalamazoosymphony.com.
