GR Symphony presents Beethoven's 7th

Grand Rapids Symphony brings Beethoven's 7th to DeVos Performance Hall on Friday, September 14th and Saturday, September 15th. 

 

Beethoven himself conducted the premiere of his Symphony No. 7 at a benefit concert for solders wouned in battle. Ever since, Beethoven's immortal Seventh Symphony has stirred the hearts and inspired the imaginations of listeners for 200 years. In the 2010 movie "The King's Speech," the powerful, second movement of Beethoven's Seventh sets the scene at the film's climax as King George VI announces on radio that Great Britain had declared war on Nazi Germany. Violinist Karen Gomyo returns as soloist in Samuel Barber's lyrical and virtuosic Violin Concerto, one of the most frequently performed works of the 20th century.
