The Season Begins with Beethoven’s Fifth!
Beethoven & The Don
Thursday, October 2 at 7:30pm – Woolsey Hall
Spend Opening Night with a Latin lover, a true romantic, and a tortured genius in a program featuring Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, Strauss’ Don Juan, and Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 1. Led by NHSO Music Director William Boughton, the concert will include a special guest performance by American-Russian violinist Yevgeny Kutik.
Take the #B5 Challenge!
Inspired by the NHSO opening night program, music director William Boughton has issued the “Beethoven Five Challenge” on Facebook to raise awareness for music education in this community. After singing the opening notes of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, Boughton challenged prominent community members to record their own performance and challenge their friends to do so as well. Participation is growing and has included video posts by the new NHSO principal pops conductor, board members, and members of the media.
