Schoenberg “A Survivor from Warsaw”
Beethoven Symphony No. 9, “Choral”

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, concluding with the exhilarating “Ode to Joy,” encourages us to celebrate our shared humanity; Schoenberg’s short but powerful “A Survivor from Warsaw” reminds us that tyranny degrades humans, both victims and perpetrators. Paired together, the audience moves from darkness to light, from profound sorrow to elation, as the music of Beethoven’s famous chorale brings together people from all walks of life. Not just a concert—an unforgettable experience of community.
