Inside In Beethoven's Ninth

Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" has thrilled listeners around the world for nearly two centuries. When it premiered in 1824, conducted by Beethoven himself, he heard not a note, so profoundly deaf was he. Nor did he hear the five standing ovations for the most epic choral work ever composed! Two iconic works by Frank Ticheli —"Rest" with Pacific Chorale and "Radiant Voices"—provide a stunning prelude. This concert takes place Thursday through Saturday, May 31, June 1-2, at 8 p.m., in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, 615 Town Center Dr. Costa Mesa, Calif. 92626. A concert preview talk starts at 7 p.m. An additional afternoon performance, "Beethoven's Ninth Revealed," takes place Sunday, June 3, at 3 p.m. For more information or to purchase tickets call (714) 755-5799 or visit
