Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 may be classical music's number one all-time hit. A masterpiece of triumph, Beethoven's "Fifth" has charmed audiences for centuries. Its opening motif is familiar to all. This celebration of Beethoven also features the Egmont Overture, a tribute to the sacrifice of a man condemned to death for taking a stand against oppression. Cheryl Losey, principal harpist of the Sarasota Orchestra, will bring her exceptional talent and passion to Ginastera's dramatic harp concerto.
