MARCH 11, 2020 UPDATE:

In accordance with Governor Inslee's moratorium on group gatherings of more than 250 people, we are cancelling our March 21 performance of Ludwig AND Beethoven. We apologize for this inconvenience but are committed to doing our part to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We are employing our best efforts to reschedule this concert for a date later in the spring. Please visit our website for more information in the upcoming days.

Creatures of Prometheus is Beethoven’s only full-length ballet and shows his lighter side. Mozart’s longest and final symphony “Jupiter” was said to be an inspiration to Beethoven with its five simultaneous melodies. Beethoven’s “Choral Fantasy” is considered a forerunner to his Ninth Symphony and includes piano and vocal solos as well as chorus. Inspired by “Choral Fantasy,” Composer in Residence David Ludwig draws on its themes in his world-premiere composition, Bleeding Pines which provides a commentary on today’s environmental crisis.
