Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony
Updated: Sep 11, 2021
Chamber Orchestra Ogden will open our 2018-2019 season with a gala performance of a single work, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 in d, Opus 125. The concert will take place in Ogden’s historic Peery’s Egyptian Theater at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday September 29.
The symphony is Beethoven’s longest, and clocks in at about one hour in length. It is subtitled “Choral,” because in addition to the full orchestra, including low brass and percussion, Beethoven wrote for four vocal soloists and a choir in the final movement.
We are very fortunate to have four excellent vocal soloists and two fine choirs for this performance. Rachel Morris, soprano, Holly Nicole Dodson, mezzo-soprano, tenor David Sauer, and baritone Errik Hood will join the orchestra, along with the Weber State University Concert Choir, conducted by Mark Henderson and the Weber State University Alumni Choir, conducted by Evelyn Harris. Our music director Michael Palumbo will conduct the joint forces. All of our soloists have distinguished singing careers, and you can read more about them as they are featured individually at https://www.facebook.com/ChamberOrchestraOgden/
Tickets for this concert are $8.00 and may be purchased at the door one hour before the concert, or online at Brown Paper Tickets at the following URL: http://coo92918.brownpapertickets.com
