Ludwig: Celebrating 250 Years of Beethoven
Innovator, creative genius, colossus of western classical music, and quite possibly the original disrupter. All of this and more can be said of classical composition mastermind Ludwig van Beethoven. In celebration and homage to Beethoven, and in honor of his 250th birthday, Spartanburg Philharmonic opens the 2020/21 season with a concert featuring his brash and revolutionary “Eroica” Symphony (Symphony no. 3 in Eb Major), along with his Concerto for Violin in D Major. The performance is September 19th from 7 to 9 PM, in Twichell Auditorium at Converse College in Spartanburg. Music Director Stefan Sanders and Chris Vaneman, Director of Petrie School of Music at Converse, will host a Classical Conversations session at 6 PM.
