Join the Dakota Valley Symphony and Chorus, and Soloists, as they celebrate the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven with his magnum opus, the Ninth Symphony. Beloved all over the world, Beethoven’s Ninth has become a plea for us all to live as brothers and sisters. With sentiments decades ahead of their time, Beethoven sets a poem by Schiller with a hopeful vision for the future of the world. As befits a birthday celebration there will be a festival of activities in the lobby including a silent auction and a drawing for TWO walls of wine to make the day bright.
