Sat 4/6 @ 8PM
Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 (“Eroica”), written in 1903-1804, is one of the most popular and familiar orchestral works, inspired by the ideals of the French Revolution. Audiences are always eager to hear it once again.
So the Akron Symphony Orchestra will be obliging them at their next concert at E.J. Thomas Hall. It will be coupled with another Beethoven piece, his Mass in C, composed just three years later. For that piece, the orchestra will be joined by the Akron Symphony Chorus, directed by Marie Bucoy-Calavan, and soloists soprano Angela Mortellaro, alto Kimberly Lauritsen, tenor Timothy Culver and bass Brian Keith Johnson.
ASO music director Christopher Wilkins will be on the podium and also leading the pre-concert discussion A Preview from the Podium at 7pm. Tickets are$25-$60.
