Festival Finale: Beethoven 5

August 7, 2021 | 7:30 pm America/Denver
The 2021 Festival Finale showcases all the sections of the orchestra, beginning with a canzon for brass and ending with Beethoven’s unforgettable Fifth Symphony. With its iconic four-note opening and its ascent from darkness to light, the Fifth is perhaps, as novelist E.M. Forster described it, “the most sublime noise that has ever penetrated into the ear of man.” Before intermission: Dvořák’s Serenade for Wind Instruments takes inspiration from similar works by Mozart, but is reimagined and infused with Dvořák’s Czech character, including hints of folk music and polka. This performance will be delivered both in person and virtually. Each in-person ticket purchase also grants access to the virtual performance. If you would prefer to attend the virtual concert only, see the full list of virtual concerts or purchase a Virtual Concerts package here.
