Ars Musica’s 50th Anniversary Season concludes with a work that needs no introduction: Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, played by the award-winning Adelphi Orchestra. Most recently performed by Ars Musica in 2004 under its third Music Director, Robert Long, Beethoven’s iconic work lends its name to this concert program, Ode to Joy. The concert will open with Poulenc’s introspectively joyful Gloria for soprano soloist, chorus, and orchestra.
