Ode to Joy Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 8pm // NVCC Fine Arts Center. Beethoven's Ninth Symphony is one of Western Culture's towering monuments. It is a celebration of joy, composed by a man cut off from the world by deafness. When three monumental movements lead up to a finale with vocal soloists and a huge choir, it feels that the entire world has joined in a hymn to our shared humanity here beneath "the starry realm." PROGRAM Ludwig van Beethoven — Symphony No. 9, Op. 125, D minor (Choral), Featuring: Vocal Quartet from the Yale Opera Program; Connecticut Choral Society, Eric Dale Knapp, Conductor; Naugatuck Valley Community College Choir, Andrew Ardizzoia, Conductor
