Beethoven Birthday Bash

Spring 2021, 3:00 P.M.
Fort Dodge Middle School Auditorium
Fort Dodge, Iowa

Happy Birthday Beethoven! Since we were unable to present this concert last March, we have invited the winners of our 2020 Young Artists Competition to join us for our belated celebration of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth. Michael Markowski’s witty Joyride (which quotes Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”) and Dale Trumbore’s shimmering Infinitely and Without Apology are new musical companions to Beethoven’s King Stephen Overture and the finale from his Symphony No. 5, undeniably one of the greatest symphonies ever composed.
