Santa Barbara Symphony Presents Beethoven @ 250

November 7, 2020 @ 7:00 am PST

The Santa Barbara Symphony celebrates Beethoven’s 250th birthday with “Beethoven @ 250,” a unique chamber music performance of some of the most beloved works by the composer as well as some newly created arrangements of Beethoven classics. This performance will be recorded live on stage from the Music Academy of the West and delivered straight to audiences through the Symphony’s new digital streaming format on Saturday, November 21, Sunday, Nov 22 and then available on-demand for ticket holders.

Beethoven @ 250 will offer a new, personal take on the composer’s music and arrangements. Through state of the art audio recording and multi-camera work, this intimate performance gets “up close and personal” with symphony musicians, including concertmaster Jessica Guideri, principal trumpet Jon Lewis, clarinetist Juan Gallego, and principal cellist Trevor Handy. These symphony all-stars will play alongside guest performers including pianist Robert Koenig who serves as Chair of the UCSB Department of Music, among others. Beethoven @ 250 will feature talented musicians performing new adaptations of Beethoven’s music in unaccompanied solos and together in duos, trios, and quartets. Audiences will get to experience the musical chemistry between symphony leaders as they make music in an intimate setting, hear Beethoven’s homage to Mozart, and enjoy discussions about Beethoven – his music and legacy – in the context of our time.

Tickets to Beethoven @ 250 start at just $43 per household with a series subscription and includes a one-time link that provides access to both the livestream and on-demand access for 30 days after the premiere broadcast. Click here for details and to purchase tickets.
