Gimeno + Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”

A triumphant rallying cry to hope, humanity, and universal fellowship, Beethoven’s eternal and transcendent Symphony No. 9—culminating in the ecstatic and uplifting “Ode to Joy”—reflects a moment in our history like no other. This unforgettable Toronto concert, which combines the Orchestra, chorus, and vocal soloists, will be one for the ages. And to start, marvel at the artistry of some of today’s brightest classical voices as the Orchestra performs new works by the TSO’s NextGen Composers, handpicked by Music Director Gustavo Gimeno.
