Symphony No. 9 "Ode to Joy" by Ludwig van Beethoven. Featuring the Newport Symphony and soloists Janice Johnson, Laura Thoreson, Les Green, and Anton Belov. We will also present selections from the "Liebeslieder" (Lovesongs) by Johannes Brahms, with four-hand piano accompaniment.
Join us for the 2019 Willamette Master Chorus Winter Concert as we collaborate and welcome the Newport Symphony and the Willamette University student choral ensembles to the stage. The Willamette Master Chorus has an ongoing musical relationship with the Newport Symphony and their director Adam Flatt. This will be our fifth performance with this Oregon Coast arts treasure. The students of Willamette University are regular guests of the WMC. Every four years we combine to present G. F. Handel's masterpiece, Messiah. Since this is an anniversary year we thought it would be wonderful to present Beethoven's masterpiece, "Ode to Joy." Welcome to our Newport and Willamette friends!
