Regarded as one of the supreme achievements in the history of Western music, Beethoven’s Ninth is one of the most performed symphonies around the world.
Based on Schiller’s poem Ode to Joy, it finishes with a celebration of the unity and dignity of human kind, a theme as relevant today as it was in 1824 when Beethoven wrote the symphony.
Marshalling the musicians will be conductor Kenneth Young, who is one of New Zealand’s leading conductors and also the University of Otago’s 2021 Mozart Fellow.
Dunedin audiences have the rare opportunity to hear New Zealanders Simon O’Neill and Jonathan Lemalu, both of whom have prestigious international careers.
Joining them for the special occasion are soprano Amanda Atlas, mezzo-soprano Katie Trigg, two of New Zealand’s rising stars, and City Choir Dunedin.
Saturday June 12, 7.30 pm, Dunedin Town Hall
