On Saturday 15th June 2013, Bray Choral Society and Wicklow Choral Society (both choirs directed by Frank Kelly) will perform Beethoven’s Symphony No 9 (Choral) with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra in Shoreline Leisure Centre, Greystones.
Beethoven’s Choral Symphony is one of the most uplifting works of the entire orchestral and choral repertoire. The famous Ode to Joy in the final movement is a triumph of joy and optimism. The symphony is a very large undertaking and as such is rarely performed. It requires a symphony orchestra of about 70 players, a large choir and four top vocal soloists. This project is on a unique scale and promises to be a memorable performance.
Performing also will be major Irish and International soloists including Miriam Murphy (soprano), Imelda Drumm (mezzo) and Manfred Hemm (bass).
This project is supported by The Arts Council and Wicklow County Arts Office and produced by Wide Open Music – led by conductor Fergus Sheil.
