ODE TO JOY: Beethoven’s Ninth & Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue in Benicia

May 25 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Celebrate the premiere of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony 200 years ago by hearing it performed LIVE, in the San Francisco Bay Area, and high in the mountains in Scuol, Switzerland. This cross-cultural collaboration features performers from the SF Bay Area and the state of Graubünden, Switzerland – which is celebrating the 500th anniversary of their founding in 1524!
Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue turns 100 years old in 2024 too – and Swiss pianist Cinzia Regensburger https://cinzia.info/ will perform the much loved classic in both the Bay Area and Switzerland.
