Sir Andrew Davis Conducts Beethoven 9

Beethoven Symphony No. 9
Featuring the Lyric Opera Orchestra and Chorus

Honoring Sir Andrew Davis

Lyric will celebrate Sir Andrew Davis’s magnificent two-decade tenure as music director with one of his favorite works, never previously performed at Lyric: Beethoven’s enthralling, life-enhancing Symphony No. 9, the “Choral,” music’s most exalted hymn to the human spirit. Sir Andrew will conduct a superb vocal quartet with the wonderful Lyric Opera Orchestra and Chorus. The concert will begin with a new choral work by Sir Andrew’s son, Ed Frazier Davis, an impressively gifted composer.

This concert is dedicated to the memory of Lady Gianna Rolandi Davis, with our love and admiration.
