Beethoven’s monumental choral symphony, penned when the composer was deaf, is widely considered the most iconic work of western music. Join Sarasota Orchestra as we celebrate Anu Tali’s six-year tenure as Music Director with a finale that is a true “Ode to Joy.” Opening the program is Arnold Schoenberg’s Peace on Earth, for chorus and orchestra, full of complex harmonies and rich choral writing. It is a natural pairing for Beethoven’s beloved anthem to his cherished belief in the virtues of humankind. Concert features four guest vocal soloists and chorus.
