The University of Arkansas at Monticello Concert Choir will join with college and university choirs from around the state and the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony February 25 at 8 p.m. and February 26 at 3 p.m. in Little Rock’s Robinson Center Music Hall.
This performance is part of the Arkansas Symphony’s concert season and will feature the full orchestra, a choir of 400, and four professional soloists. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 in D minor was completed in 1824 and is Beethoven’s final complete symphony. The words sung during the final movement are taken from “Ode to Joy,” a poem written by Friedrich Schiller.
Also on the program is Arnold Schoenberg’s “A Survivor From Warsaw” featuring narrator George Takei – Sulu on the Star Trek television series.
