Cabrillo Symphonic Chorus performs Beethoven Symphony #9 with the Santa Cruz Symphony

Saturday May 7th 8:00pm, Civic Auditorium, Santa Cruz

Sunday May 8th 2:00pm, Mello Center, Watsonville

Beethoven's 9th Symphony, which includes the Choral 'Ode to Joy', contains no less than one of Mankind's supreme epiphanies of love and goodwill, yet it remains the journey towards this utopian summit that makes this Symphony arguably the greatest of all. Contemporary composer-conductor Esa-Peka Salonen's NYX spins an intoxicating web of associative colors and textures while describing a proto-god of Greek Mythology. Featuring vocal soloists from the Metropolitan Opera and the Cabrillo Symphonic Chorus.

Salonen NYX Beethoven Symphony No. 9 Cabrillo Symphonic Chorus- Soloists TBA.
