Beethoven's Ninth Symphony! - May 16th

Beethoven's immortal Ninth Symphony! One of the greatest works of art ever created in any genre, the Ninth Symphony is undoubtedly one of the glories of Western civilzation.    

Listening to a recording of Beethoven's Ninth is amazing, but hearing a live performance is a truly an experience unlike any other.  Nothing can rival the power of a full, world-class symphony orchestra, four internationally acclaimed soloists, and a choir of over 80 singers, all under the direction of our own Music Director Jerry Steichen! 

Join us on Saturday, May 16th, 8:00 pm, at Anne S. Richardson Auditorium at Ridgefield High School.  Also on the program is the Ballet Music from Franz Schubert's opera Rosamunde.  A terrific program of Teutonic masterpieces! 

And as this is the final performance of the RSO's Golden Anniversary Season, stay after the performance for a special reception in honor of 50 years of great music!

Tickets are going fast, so order today to avoid disappoinment.  This will assuredly be a concert that will be talked about for decades to come!  For ordering tickets by phone, call the RSO Box Office at 203-438-3889, or online by going to our tickets page on the website.  For more information on this incredible concert, visit the concert page on our website.
