250 years ago Ludwig van Beethoven was born — within a few years, he would change the very face of music. As part of a global celebration of this revolutionary composer, WSS presents an all-Beethoven concert in his honor. The world immediately took notice of Beethoven’s First Symphony, a genre-changing masterpiece which marked a graduation from his education under Mozart and Haydn. This birthday party begins with the overture to his only opera, Fidelio, and culminates in his tranquil Mass in C, featuring the WSS Symphony Chorus.
