Beethoven Lives Upstairs
Based on the award-winning recording, this concert features a lively exchange of letters between young Christoph and his uncle about the “madman” who has moved in upstairs. Through touching correspondence and beautifully performed excerpts, Christoph comes to understand the genius of Beethoven, the beauty of his music, and his personal torment.
Young People's Concerts are roughly one hour in length, with no intermission. Young People's Concerts can also be purchased as a package!
Sound the trumpets! We've added a free, interactive Instrument Discovery Zone to our YPC pre-concert lobby activities. Be sure to arrive early for a chance to play a wide variety of orchestral instruments yourself. You may just discover one that strikes a chord with you! Before the concert starts, you'll also get to hear a lobby performance by the musical trio Robin, Alex, and Ali.
This performance is a part of our year-long celebration commemorating two and a half centuries of this classical music titan. Read more about Beethoven@250.
Paul Pement, Thad Avery, and Andrew Redlawsk from Classical Kids LIVE! will be selling and signing merchandise after the 4pm performance in the South Lobby.
