Beethoven 9

Sun, May 8th 2:30 PM - 4:30 pm

Arguably the most famous symphony ever, Beethoven’s glorious Ninth will be the magnificent closing celebration of the VS’s 75th season. Bringing together artists with a long history in Victoria including two major choral groups, this concert salutes the greater Victoria arts community that has enabled the Victoria Symphony to flourish. As an added bonus, special guest world-famous double bassist Gary Karr joins the festivities to play Bottesini’s Reverie and Tarantella.

Tickets are available from $30 – $80 here.
