Eco-Beethoven with CCSO on April 26 @ Vets

5616563653_b553f04a18_bThe Culver City Symphony Orchestra’s next concert features two winners, both violinists, from our Parness Concerto Competition: Aileen Chung-Age 14 and Yu Chao Weng-Age 16. This annual concert is our support For Young Musicians.

Performing so close to Earth Day, the orchestra wanted to reflect on nature, and the sounds and feelings that inspired composers. With Mendelssohn’s work, the theme of Nature resounds. Beethoven found inspiration and escape in Nature. He would walk through the woods sketching ideas in his music notebook. His Ode to Nature is his “Pastorale” Symphony, No. 6. What would Beethoven think, and how would he feel, about the condition of today’s environment? This concert celebrates Beethoven and the preservation of our Natural World, and the betterment of Nature in our urban environment.

Music Director Frank Fetta conducts the orchestra.
